COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Your health and well-being are the top priorities at NIU and the University Writing Center. In response to COVID-19, we're adapting our services to a non-face-to-face format. It's our goal to ensure that there are no gaps in services.

From brainstorming to polishing the final draft, we'll help you become a stronger, more confident writer.

At the University Writing Center, we'll brainstorm with you, encourage you and offer constructive feedback as you perfect your writing project. We provide a safe place for all members of the NIU community to practice writing and writing-related communications without fear of judgment. We'll help you improve your essay, resume or other project and, more importantly, help you grow into a more skilled writer.
