Mission Statement

English has become, for all intents and purposes, the lingua franca of the worldwide academic community. In many disciplines it is important to be able to communicate in English in order to gain the widest possible audience for one’s work. In the increasing push for internationalization, English is imperative. However, working in a language other than one’s native tongue can be daunting. It is our goal to help the university community ease into this transition by helping with all aspects of English writing. Our service is open to all members of the University community.
