Writing Center Mission Statement
The Writing Center promotes literacy at America’s oldest Historically Black Institution of Higher Learning by providing support for student writing across all classes and disciplines. Writing assistants offer one-on-one consultations at all stages of the writing process from focusing topics through drafting, revising, and editing. The Writing Center at Cheyney University provides a friendly, quiet environment for reading, writing, and collaboration.
Students are welcome to schedule an appointment or to bring papers to the Writing Center on a walk-in basis during hours of operation. Writing assistants offer guidance and feedback, but students remain responsible for their own writing. Students can build their confidence and improve their writing skills at all levels by visiting the Writing Center often and getting feedback on all of their drafts.
The Writing Center is funded by a grant from the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA), Title III Part F.
