Writing Center

In line with LAU’s Mission, the LAU Writing Center, located on the Beirut Campus, is devoted to academic excellence and student-centeredness. The Center aims at promoting a general culture of writing at the university, at enhancing writing across the curriculum, and at helping students develop as more thoughtful, independent, and rhetorically effective writers.

The Center is not a drop-off, editing, or proofreading service; rather, it is a place where writers can develop their writing skills and strategies. Free, one-hour individual writing consultations are offered to all members of the LAU community. Undergraduate and graduate students from any discipline are welcome to share any text, at any stage of the writing process, with writing tutors who will guide them in a nondirective style. Tutors are trained to respect each writer’s level of achievement, encourage analytical thinking, and discuss strategies for writing. Texts may include academic essays, research papers, reading responses, résumés and curriculum vitae, among others.
