Student Services

University Writing Commons

The University Writing Commons (formerly the “Writing Center”) is a free service available to all RIT students, regardless of major, that seeks to:

  • Assist students in becoming confident, inventive, and dynamic writers
  • Foster productive, goal-oriented conversations about writing projects at any stage of the composing process, from invention to final draft, and the rhetorical moves of academic and professional writing
  • Create an intellectual space for students and faculty to explore university literacy practices with peer and professional writing consultants
  • Cultivate an approach to writing that sees language difference as an opportunity for making and presenting meaning, not as an obstacle to understanding
  • Collaborate with any faculty member, staff, or student to design and conduct writing-related research

University Writing Commons is staffed with both peer and professional writing consultants that are available throughout the week to assist you with a variety of writing-related issues, from idea-generation and outlining, to proofreading and editing a final draft, and everything in between!
