Where Knowledge and Character Matter

Writing Center

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).
