Mission

The mission of the IPFW Writing Center is to help writers learn to use language more effectively, produce clear writing appropriate to their purposes and audiences, and develop positive attitudes about writing and about themselves as writers.

Policies

Because we have a limited number of staff and we serve all students taking classes on IPFW's campus, we must enforce several policies:

  • Students may schedule one appointment per day, per class
  • If a student schedules more than one appointment per day for the same class, the first appointment of the day will be kept and all following Writing Center appointments (for that class) will be canceled.
  • Students may schedule up to three appointments per 6-day period, per class.
  • Due to appointment time constraints, we ask that students not plan to have more than 8-10 pages of text consulted on in a single appointment. If the paper is more than 10 pages long, please be prepared to provide a 10-page range of text to focus on during the appointment.
  • Graduate students must meet with graduate student consultants or undergraduate student consultants that have been approved for graduate work.
  • We do not provide transcription or dictation services
