About us

Writing is an important skill for all students, teachers and professionals of every kind. As a student at Cleveland State University you will find that classes in every discipline use writing to help students explore, create and communicate ideas. Student writing can take many forms, from lab reports to research papers, group projects to journal entries.

The CSU Writing Center and WAC Program have two goals: hospitality and independence. We strive to create a warm environment because we believe that writing requires many decisions that are best made in a peaceful and welcoming environment. The other goal of independence refers to our desire to teach students to use writing strategies for themselves. For the past several semesters, we have seen over 900 students and given between 2,000-3,000 appointments. Our staff is comprised of graduate students in literature or creative writing who enjoy working with students. We are located on the first floor of the library behind the reference desk.
