In support of the core curriculum and the Writing Enhanced Course Program, Writing Centers are available for all students and faculty on the Westchester and New York City campuses. In addition to tutorial services in writing for students, the Writing Center provides resources and assistance to teachers of writing-enhanced courses (and teachers of all courses that require any amount of writing) on fostering students' communication and critical thinking skills through writing.
