The mission of the Vassar College Writing Center is to facilitate a community of writers that empowers individuals to direct their own education through the social process of writing.

  1. The Writing Center nurtures the ongoing discovery and creation of knowledge through critical inquiry and collaborative dialogue;
  2. Cultivates the articulate and appropriate expression of ideas;
  3. Promotes interdisciplinary thinking and knowledge transfer beyond the constraints of a classroom;
  4. Challenges students to claim agency through the act of writing;
  5. and, affords consultants the opportunity to evolve as theoretically and pedagogically-informed writers who can speak cogently about their practice.
