The Miller Writing Center (MWC) offers free, one-on-one writing consultations to all students at Auburn University.
Funds raised on Tiger Giving Day would allow the MWC to meet the increasing needs of Auburn students by funding additional student staff salaries. Additionally, the nature of education and writing is constantly changing due to digital technologies, requiring additional training, equipment, and resources for MWC staff.
The MWC is also committed to maintaining an accessible environment for all writers by choosing to offer online appointments for students. Online appointments allow students to receive help from any location but also bring extra considerations. The MWC needs to purchase headset and webcam equipment to help students receive a similar face-to-face experience during online appointments.
The MWC was established in 2010 to help advance the university’s mission of supporting students in effective writing across all disciplines. It is open six days per week and is staffed by trained undergraduate and graduate students from all majors and backgrounds. All employees are equipped to work with a range of writing forms, including essays, research papers, dissertations, resumes, PowerPoint presentations, and cover letters. Students make appointments at the MWC during any stage of their writing process – from brainstorming to a final draft – to receive customized help.
Writing is an integral part of an Auburn education. All undergraduate programs at Auburn are required to incorporate writing into their curricula, and effective written communication is one of employers’ most valued skills. By supporting student writers, the Miller Writing Center ultimately contributes to the long-term success of Auburn graduates and reflects positively on the strength of an Auburn education.
Any gift to student writing would be greatly appreciated by the Miller Writing Center – thank you in advance for your support!
