Mission Statement

Dallas Baptist University's mission statement outlines the University's desire to educate and instruct students to practice Christ-centered servant leadership in their communities. The University Writing Center (UWC) is aware that clear communication is an essential element of effective leadership. Therefore, it is the UWC's goal to offer support to all students in developing both written and verbal communication skills, at any level of study and in any discipline, in a welcoming facility set aside for this purpose. Through consultation with qualified, extensively-trained writing consultants, students' leadership abilities are enhanced as their communication skills improve. Additionally, the Writing Center offers various kinds of support to the faculty members of Dallas Baptist University, as professors strive to illuminate the importance of students' concrete writing ability for a strong leadership profile.

To ensure the highest quality of service, the UWC's Consultant Training program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association's (CRLA) International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC).

Writing Across the Curriculum

The Writing Center staff adheres to the concept of "Writing Across the Curriculum."  Learning to write effectively means learning to think critically and to apply all knowledge in a clear and precise manner to one's job, home, community, and world view.  Therefore, writing can be used as a tool for learning in any discipline.
