Funded under the Title III Program, the
Writing Center was established on the campus of Alcorn State University in 2003
under the direction of Dr. Murray Shugars, Associate Professor in the
Department of English and Foreign Languages. The goal of a college writing
center is to support writing across campus. Consulting services and other
Writing Center resources are available to all students, faculty, and
staff. The goal of the Writing Center is to help individuals become
better writers. Moreover, the AWC does not write or proofread papers.
The AWC offers the following services
available to students and the general public:
- Free consulting services (work with a trained, skilled, and
competent consultant; the consultations are scheduled on an appointment
basis by calling the center or visiting; walk-ins are also available).
- Improve writing skills
- Plan, organize, and revise essays and reports
- Write job and graduate school applications, cover letters, and
- Computer usage, book check-outs, and other media resources.
