The Center for Writing & Academic Achievement

The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) provides welcoming, peer-based academic support in a comfortable and inclusive environment. Our services cover all academic disciplines and support students at various points in their academic careers. We believe in fostering confidence and a positive attitude in tutors and tutees alike, while encouraging a love of learning beyond the classroom. The CWAA is located in MacPhaidin Library, room 314.

We will open Tuesday, September 5, at 12:00 p.m.
