Our Mission

At the AQ Writing Center, our mission is to support members of the Aquinas community in their personal, academic, and professional writing. In one-on-one consulting sessions, we engage writers in dialogue that not only provides immediate feedback and strategies for their particular writing projects, but also contributes to their ongoing development as writers.

We are here to consult with all AQ writers—students, faculty, staff, and alumni. 

We are available to discuss any writing project at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to final polishing.
