The Writing Center is found in the Library - Study Room 4
AUD offers the free services of a Writing Center where AUD students can receive one-to-one assistance on writing tasks. Students can receive assistance on assignments at various stages of the process of completion. Assistance is provided by full-time instructors on writing tasks in any discipline, with a focus on developing overall academic writing skills. Tutors will work with students in 20-40 minute sessions to improve a particular assignment, but more importantly to improve their writing skills overall, including grammar, punctuation, organization, transitions, thesis development, and critical thinking, to name a few.
In addition, there are two computers available in the Center, for students to work on their writing assignments in a focused environment. For students who want to improve a particular skill, such as thesis development, there will be online tutorials.
