Lansing Community College

Our staff provide individualized support to student writers on a wide variety of reading and writing tasks.

Writing is a skill, a practice, and a process that improves over time. Repeated visits to the Writing Center can help students develop a better awareness of processes and strategies that produce better writing. Our goal is to help students become better writers by developing confidence, proficiency, and self-awareness as they encounter future writing tasks.


We offer 45-minute in-person and online real-time appointments, which can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance. Online real-time appointments are conducted using Webex. Students will choose between in-person or online real-time appointment options when scheduling.

Our Mission

The Writing Center supports student writers in the LCC community by providing assistance that facilitates growth and development in critical thinking and writing.


  • We value the lived experiences and diverse perspectives of writers, including those who staff our Writing Center.
  • We value high quality interaction between Writing Assistants and students, aimed at improving both the writing and the writer.
  • We value assisting student writers in making strategic decisions about the preservation of their own voices within their written work.
  • We value writing as a complex skill that everyone can improve with practice and support.
  • We value compassionate feedback for writers from the moment their ideas take shape through the final stages of polishing their written work.
  • We value collaboration with faculty.


Our Writing Center will be a positive place of growth for writers within the LCC community. To achieve this, we will engage with others who teach and support writing across our campus. We will employ a dedicated and diverse staff trained in writing-center pedagogy.
