The Michigan Tech Writing Center—107 Walker Arts & Humanities Center

Founded in 1975 as the Language Skills Lab, the Michigan Tech Writing Center has operated under a variety of guises, but one thing has always remained consistent—for more than 45 years, we’ve been welcoming generations of Michigan Tech students from every program on campus into more emergent, reflective, socially conscious, and rhetorically grounded writing practice. 

As all disciplines are writing intensive, our center’s work is vital to the success of all Michigan Tech undergraduate students. Storytelling, in all its rich and complicated modalities, isn’t just a hobby or the esoteric specialty of a few, but is at the core of a full, ethical, and meaningful existence for all. Chosen poorly, our words disorient, divide, misinform, and sow confusion. Chosen well, they conjure, illuminate, entertain, provoke, and inspire. In all human endeavor, words remain at the core of our discoveries and innovations, and allow us to connect not just to our own means of self expression, but to our ability to contribute to healthy, just, and equitable communities. 

What the Michigan Tech Writing Center specifically offers students is free, collaborative, peer-to-peer assistance on multimodal writing projects of all kinds, at all stages of development, both in-person and online, in a setting that is warm, welcoming, inclusive, and free of judgement.
