Mission Statement

Supporting and strengthening writers.

Vision Statement

The faculty and staff of Emporia State University's Writing Center believe that writing is a collaborative process of discovery, learning, and communication, and that writing is fluid and contextual. As such, we recognize writing as a social force that can lead to empowerment, growth, and change. Further, we believe that diversity, in all its forms, strengthens our academic community. Understanding and valuing how life experiences and worldviews shape writers and inform their writing processes, our writing partners assist writers to maintain integrity of voice while meeting the demands and constraints of particular writing projects.
