Writing Commons Overview

The RIT Writing Center is staffed by a team of undergraduate and faculty writing consultants with expertise in STEM and Humanities disciplines.

Writing consultations can be either in-person or online, scheduled through WCOnlineWe are located on the First Floor of Wallace Library (Building 5-1640). 

Our consultants provide both individualized and group feedback and guidance on academic and professional writing at any stage of the writing process. 

The Writing Center does not charge for any of its resources or appointments. We are available for appointments with undergraduate and graduate students. 

Undergraduate Students

Writing Center consultants support students in becoming confident, inventive, and dynamic writers. From research papers to lab reports, sessions can focus on both higher-order concerns (audience, genre, use of sources) and lower-order concerns (grammar, editing, formatting). During a goal-oriented conversation about writing from invention to final draft, writing consultants will help you identify patterns they see in your writing and support you in developing new writing knowledge and skills.

Graduate Students

Graduate students working on large projects (e.g., theses, dissertations, and capstones) are encouraged to make appointments with writing consultants in advance through WCOnline. We currently have two Graduate Writing Consultants on staff, identified in WCOnline. If you are working on a thesis or dissertation, please be familiar with guidelines published by your department. Keep these guidelines accessible so that you and your consultant can refer to them, if necessary.
