What we do:The Writing Center provides writing support to undergraduate and graduate students. 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. Learn more about what happens in a Writing Center consultation.

Who's eligible: We will work with any currently-enrolled Columbia University undergraduate or graduate student with the following exceptions: Barnard, Teacher’s College, and School of Social Work. Students in these schools need to use their own institution’s writing center unless they are taking a Columbia course not offered through their schools.
