Writing Center Mission Statement
The Kean University Writing Center’s mission is:
- to support the diverse writers who make up our student body, faculty, and staff;
- to energize the teaching of writing across the disciplines;
- and to serve as a center for writing research.
Our work is deeply connected to the mission of the University at large, and our approach is founded on scholarship showing that writing grows out of conversations between people; that writing is an expression of culture and identity; and that writing is a powerful agent in the creation of knowledge
We encourage the persistent, reflective practices for writing that can foster the intellectual, cultural and personal growth of individual writers and of the community at large.
