The Undergraduate Writing Program

Welcome to the Writing Center

The Writing Center provides writing support to the entire Columbia community, from first-year undergraduates to faculty. In one-on-one consultations and workshops, our consultants offer feedback and strategies to help you improve at every stage of your writing, from brainstorming to final drafts. To learn more about what happens in a Writing Center consultation, click here.

We will work with all Columbia-affiliated writers with the following exceptions: BarnardTeacher’s College, and School of Social Work students need to use their own institution’s writing center.  Students from these three schools may use our center ONLY for Columbia courses not offered through their schools.
