Writing and Math Center

Riverland Community College's Writing Center helps students in all disciplines become more effective and more confident writers. We believe that writing is a powerful tool not only for communicating existing ideas but also for discovering new ones; that learning to write is a life-long process; and that all writers benefit from sharing work in progress with knowledgeable, attentive readers. Our methods - multi-faceted, flexible, and above all, collaborative - reflect our respect for the individual writer, whose talents, voice, and goals are central to all our endeavors.

Dedicated to Riverland's pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning, the Writing Center offers:

  • trained, supportive instructors who work one-on-one with students and with groups of students at all levels and in all disciplines through drop-in and scheduled sessions
  • workshops about academic writing
  • reference materials about academic writing
