Helen N. Wallace Writing Center



The Helen N. Wallace Writing Center offers one-on-one assistance with writing projects to all University of Tulsa students. Students may bring in assignments from any class as well as personal writing projects like résumés.   

Writing Consultants can help students at any stage of writing: formulating ideas, developing and organizing a draft, editing a near final version, or anything in between. During a session, a writing consultant will help students identify weaknesses in their writing and find ways to strengthen their rhetorical choice.

Mission Statement

The University of Tulsa Writing Center will support the university community’s writing endeavors in all aspects of the composing process. The primary goal of the Writing Center is to enhance classroom instruction by providing personal and in-depth guidance to student writers. Writing Center consultants are skilled in diagnosing weaknesses in student writing and in helping students learn to write professionally and confidently. Additionally, the consultants are experienced in helping ESL students tackle the demands of writing in English. The consultants will work with students in a collaborative effort to engage in the writing process as a whole, from brainstorming to editing, focusing on the revision and rewriting of the work at hand. From generating the initial ideas to polishing the final draft, the Writing Center will offer a constructive, hands-on approach to writing, enabling students to express themselves with confidence and clarity. The Writing Center will provide a “second set of eyes” throughout students’ undergraduate careers, reminding them that the best writing is never accomplished alone.
