Writing Center


The Saint Mary's University Writing Center promotes the university's mission to serve diverse communities of learners as inspired by the faith, zeal, and service modeled by Saint John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. The Writing Center sustains the Lasallian mission of hospitality and service by providing all members of the Saint Mary's University community with the opportunity to receive individualized instruction in and feedback on their writing at any stage of the writing process. This work is done in an atmosphere that promotes the tutoring process as a community experience where writers and tutors collaborate in a shared effort to make meaning.

The Writing Center is located at 78 Griffin Hall (lower level of Saint Mary's Hall). The side ramp entrance of Saint Mary's Hall provides easy access to the center.

The Writing Center is staffed Monday through Friday during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tutoring is also available from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. The Writing Center is open on days when classes are in session, including hours during finals week, but is closed for tutoring during breaks.
