The Central Michigan Writing Center is dedicated to supporting, researching, and advocating for writers and the work of writing on campus and beyond. Writing Center consultants and faculty strive to offer a safe and inclusive environment for people to consider how they might engage more ably and more ethically as writers in the world.
We work with writers on sentence-level and correctness issues to assist them in more fluidly making the transition into their communities of choice; at the same time, we value linguistic diversity and the identities embodied and enacted in that diversity and work with writers to make informed choices about the sorts of “code-switching” necessary to successfully navigate the communities they choose.
The Office of Student Success houses many different services and departments to assist you throughout your time on campus:
Academic Advising: Your advisor will help you with traditional academic advising services such as degree planning, selecting classes, etc., and will also provide academic coaching services such as helping with the college transition, time management, and goal setting.
Academic Assistance: You can get help with your academics through Academic Assistance by using Supplemental Instruction (SI) services and/or Tutoring Services.
Pathways to Academic Student Success: If you are Pell-eligible and/or first-generation, please check out Pathways to find a community of support, mentoring opportunities, and help with advising and study tables!
McNair Scholars Program: If you are first-generation or part of an underrepresented population, AND interested in pursuing a doctoral degree, check out McNair Scholars Program. You would receive access to resources such as researching with a faculty member and financial assistance during your graduation school exploration and application process.
Counseling Center staff are committed to creating an environment where all individuals will be appreciated and treated with respect. We strive to create an open and safe environment where individuals can freely explore and express all identities, beliefs and values in order to achieve their own personal and academic success at CMU.
