Mission Statement

The Writing Center supports the writing goals of various UVU communities by providing flexible programs and resources tailored to the needs of diverse writers from all disciplines, aiding their access to a range of academic and non-academic literacies.

How We Help

We help students become confident, independent writers by assisting with a current writing project and building skills for future writing projects. While we can accommodate walk-in tutoring when our schedule permits, we primarily operate by appointment. Tutors coach students through the writing process with questions, examples, and practice, rather than editing for students.

Who We Help

We tutor students, faculty, staff, and community members from various backgrounds. We help with English classes, business writing, research assignments, creative writing, career or college applications, ELL courses, and various other kinds of writing. Tutoring at the UVU Writing Center is always free, and many tutors from a variety of backgrounds are available.
