Role of the NAU-Yuma Writing Center
Writing consultants provide tools and strategies to help students improve their own papers; however, consultants do not proofread, edit, or revise students’ papers. Students and faculty should be aware that not all of a student’s writing issues can be addressed during a one-hour writing consultation. Consultants may recommend follow-up appointments in order to help students strengthen writing skills over a reasonable period of time.
