The Writing Center is located within the library at Itasca Community College. Our main goal is to advance the development of students as writers by engaging with the writing process at any stage, in any discipline, while enhancing faculty efforts to use writing as an effective and vital teaching tool. Our vision is to to create a writing culture on the ICC campus that advances student excellence and faculty innovation. Due to the high volume of students who use the Writing Center, consultations are by appointment only. Please make sure to plan ahead if a visit to the Writing Center is a course requirement.
Writing Center Goals
We engage students to examine their own writing through dialogue, and our main goal is to develop better writers: that is, more critically aware students with the tools to self-evaluate their work.
We strongly encourage faculty to include writing in their classrooms, and will be here to support those efforts by working closely with both faculty and students to make writing an effective learning and teaching tool.
The Writing Center has MLA and APA Style guides available in the library and online, as well as an easy-to-use basic research essay outline.
To make an appointment please stop by our office in the library, or contact Cole Perry at 218.322.2454. Appointments can also be scheduled through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
