Writing Center The primary purpose of the Writing Center of Gannon University is to engender more effective, confident writers regardless of experience, learning style, disability or mother language. We believe that writing is an essential communicative tool employed to express ideas and formulate new ones across our vast curriculum. Not only is writing essential for a successful academic career and beyond, but its process is crucial to the organization of thought and to the expansion or modification of a concept. The Writing Center is staffed by members of the English Department and trained peer consultants who reflect our respect for the individual writer, whose talents, voice and goals are central to all our endeavors. The Writing Center, which has both day, evening and Sunday hours, provides one-on-one conferencing directed toward a stronger comprehension of the writing process, and also language arts software tutorials.
