The Writing Center staff consists of NMU students who are all skilled writers. Many of our tutors are English, English Education, or Writing majors, but we also employ tutors studying other subjects, such as Accounting, Fisheries & Wildlife, Chemistry, and more. Their diverse educational backgrounds help us offer well-rounded tutoring services to NMU's students, faculty, and staff, because their expertise in different types of essays, formatting, and grammar complement each other. To provide the best possible Writing Center experience, all of our tutors take a class to learn how to effectively meet visitors where they're at, offer constructive feedback and useful writing tools, and create a professional, comfortable peer review setting.
Supporting our tutors are the faculty Director, an experienced professor in the English Department, and the Assistant Director, a graduate student pursuing an MFA degree in one or more areas of creative writing.
