Helping Every Student Harness the Power of Their Words

One of our points of pride at Nova Southeastern University is our renowned Writing and Communications Center. The services of the center are available to every NSU student through consultations, workshops and course-embedded writing assistants.

Trained professionals and peer writing consultants can help you hone your voice through individualized writing and communications assistance at any stage of the process.

The Mission of the Writing and Communications Center

NSU’s Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center (WCC) is a student-centered, co-curricular academic program that helps students achieve academic excellence. The NSU WCC provides faculty members and students with innovative teaching, learning and scholarship opportunities, both in and out of the classroom. Students work with, and learn from, a diverse community of writers and researchers. The NSU WCC supports the university’s mission and core values.

Writing Center Workshops and Events

The WCC hosts or participates in a number of events throughout the year that you may be interested in, such as:

Kinda Long Night Against Procrastination (KLNAP) Come join us right before finals for focused time finishing up your writing. Food provided.

Dissertation Boot Camps and Discipline- and Profession-Specific Writing Retreats

Weekly Write-Ins – Weekly writing group where faculty, graduate and professional students can come together this fall for dedicated time to focus on writing your dissertation, research, grants or other projects. This writing group will meet on Mondays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the WCC (Alvin Sherman Library, 430), and online via GoToMeeting this fall starting September 9.

Wikipedia Edit-a-thon – Once a semester, the WCC hosts an event to educate students about editing Wikipedia, to improve articles and to address its biases in what gets recorded and by whom. Each time we hold this event, the WCC will partner with an NSU department to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of topics related to that discipline.

National Day on Writing – Visit the WCC on this day to add your voice to a national conversation on why we write.
