 The University Writing Center (UWC) is dedicated to fostering a community of critical writers and critical thinkers in accordance with the University’s mission to engage “high-achieving scholars” in life-changing pedagogical practices. Hence, our motto is "Writers Transform Writers!"

The UWC strives to support actively enrolled students in their development as confident, proficient writers and to provide high-quality service to the N.C. A&T community. To attain this goal, writing consultants support writers through in-person and online synchronous conferences and programs such as presentations, workshops, and course-embedded consultations. Because we believe writing is a way of learning, we assist writers at any stage of their writing process—prewriting, researching, drafting, revising, or publishing—and with any writing concept. Equally important, we promote evidence-based practices

  • reading (read-aloud protocol),
  • thinking (Socratic questioning),
  • writing instruction (note-taking),
  • computer literacy (functional, critical (GAI), and rhetorical),
  • immediate, effective feedback, and
  • process writing.
