The University Writing Center

The University Writing Center (UWC) is dedicated to fostering a community of critical writers and critical thinkers in accordance with the University’s mission to engage “high-achieving scholars” in life-changing pedagogical practices. Hence, our motto is "Writers Transform Writers!"

The UWC strives to support students in their development as confident, proficient writers and to provide high-quality service to the N.C. A&T community. To attain this goal, writing consultants support writers through in-person and online synchronous conferences and programs such as presentations, workshops, and course-embedded consultations. Because we believe writing is a way of learning, we assist writers at any stage of their writing process—prewriting, researching, drafting, revising, or publishing—and with any writing concept. Equally important, we promote evidence-based practices by integrating reading (read-aloud protocol) and writing instruction (note-taking) into our consultations, providing immediate, effective feedback, and using a process writing model.


Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (in-person and virtual)
Friday 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (in-person and virtual)
Sunday 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. (virtual only)

During the academic year, we offer in-person and virtual consultations by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome and will be assisted on a first-come, first-served basis!
