Not too many years ago, right about the start of the new millennium, the TAMU-CC Writing Center began to pull away from the model of a center that focuses mostly on individual consultations and began to build a greater sense of the place of the Writing Center in the larger university Writing Community. In this article, we share how we have built on 21st century writing center research and theories to extend the boundaries of the classroom and offer community building opportunities for both students and faculty and how these activities--In-House Workshops, Assignment Review, and THEA Assistance--have helped to build that Writing Community.
