University Writing Program

Support for students, multilingual writers, faculty and programs

The Drexel Korman Center is the home of the Drexel Writing Center for students.

Writing connects language with thought and action. Writing gets things done in the world. Writing is the primary tool for learning and doing, central to Drexel University’s mission to prepare each generation of students for productive professional and civic lives. That’s where the University Writing Program comes in. We assist Drexel students, multilingual writers, faculty and staff to engage in writing across a wide range of modes for learning. In addition, we work to ensure Drexel graduates go on to write with flexibility, confidence, and curiosity as educated contributors to civic and professional life.

Got an idea or a question about writing? We look forward to hearing from you. Please email Liz Kimball, Director, University Writing Program, ek674@drexel.edu or call 215.895.6633. We encourage you to stop by the Drexel Writing Center located in the Korman Center in rooms 100-103.
