The Writing Center

Welcome to the Oakland University Writing Center - The "Write Space" on campus

The Oakland University Writing Center is open to OU students, faculty, and staff in all disciplines at any stage of the writing process. The center provides writers with an interested and supportive audience of well-trained consultants who help both novice and expert writers explore ideas, revise drafts, and develop the skills to craft polished works.

Whether you are a nursing student, a future teacher, a prospective scholarship recipient, a graduate dissertation writer, or a faculty member preparing for tenure review, learn more about the writing center by exploring this site and by visiting Oakland University's "Write Space" in Kresge Library.
