The University Writing Center

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 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 processes—prewriting, researching, drafting, revising, or publishing—and with any writing concept.


  • Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (in-person and online)
  • Friday 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (in-person and online)
  • Sunday 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (online)

We offer in-person and virtual consultations by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome! The University Writing Center is in General Classroom Building A309.


The UWC uses a scheduling system called WCOnline.
