The mission of the Sterling College Writing Center is to equip students to be writers of academic and professional integrity. It is a helpful place for students needing assignment-specific or discipline-specific writing assistance. Students who simply want to grow as writers may also benefit from its services. The Writing Center is located in Mabee Library. Hours vary each semester, so consult the office for a posted schedule or contact Academic Support at 620-278-4463 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
