The Penn State Berks Writing Center promotes excellence in writing. We provide a collaborative and interactive peer tutoring experience in which students learn composing strategies and discover the diverse range of rhetorical choices available to writers. Since writing is a mode of learning as well as a tool for communication, we believe that writers benefit from sharing their works-in-progress with trained, knowledgeable, and interested readers. Furthermore, the Writing Center acts as a hub of intellectual engagement to support and encourage a culture of writing on campus. To that end, we sponsor writing-related activities that foster student, faculty, staff, and community engagement.

Dedicated to the University’s pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, and service, the Writing Center has the following goals over the next 3-5 years:

  • Support student writers across the curriculum
  • Increase professional development opportunities for student tutors
  • Support WAC initiatives
  • Encourage a culture of writing on campus
  • Create a writing center that serves as a hub of intellectual engagement
