Mission Statement

The CGCC Writing Center promotes the college's mission of serving our students by providing quality academic support to nurture life-long learning. We strive to create a welcoming environment in which we help students become better writers. Through a student-centered approach, we encourage an understanding of and critical reflection about writing and demystify the writing process to foster independence. Writing tutors work with students at all levels and abilities and in all disciplines to help them develop effective strategies for any writing situation.

Tutors help students develop strategies to achieve their goals as writers by counseling them to make informed choices. We do not write or edit papers for students. Instead, tutors give individualized attention to students at all stages of the writing process. We listen, dialogue, read carefully, and ask questions. We provided guided practice to build confidence and enhance critical thinking about writing. Ultimately, we aim to help students become successful, independent writers.​
