The SOBE Writing Assistance Center
The Department of Business Education supports the School of Business and Economics (SOBE) Writing Assistance Center. The mission of the Center is to help students become more confident and effective communicators. Working with students one-on-one, we provide coaching and tutoring, promote professionalism, and encourage students to see the connection between effective written communication skills and career enhancement. However, we are not an editing service. Instead, we teach students how to recognize problems with organization, development, syntax, grammar, and mechanics as well as to edit their own work more accurately and efficiently.
Students of all disciplines and writing abilities are welcome to discuss their business-related writing with a trained writing consultant. Our services are free to all students in the School of Business and Economics.
Center hours vary from semester to semester. Appointments are not required; students may stop by at any time during the posted hours. However, during busy times of the semester (such as midterms and the end of the semester), appointments are strongly advised. If a student needs to cancel a scheduled appointment, please call at least one hour before the scheduled time.
Students visiting the Center should bring a copy of the assignment, including any special instructions about format, organization, or documentation provided by their faculty member.
