Writing & Communications Center

The Writing & Communications Center (WCC) helps students become more independent, confident writers, speakers, and thinkers through a range of writing and public speaking support services and college success skills assistance. By listening, asking questions, and providing resources, our writing consultants empower students to evaluate and make decisions about their own work, encouraging them to develop positive attitudes about their communication skills.  

Our services are rooted in the belief that purpose- and process-driven, focused, well-organized, well-supported work that meets assignment requirements is most important in effective communication. Thus, we endeavor to create better writers and speakers, not better writing and speeches.

LCCC students should contact us or stop by the WCC in the Ludden Library and Learning Commons, LIB 430, to schedule an appointment or ask about our drop-in hours.  Appointments are highly encouraged.  

You can also request a tutor online.  

The Student Success Center is available to help students with course content, homework, questions, study strategies, and test preparation in nearly all subjects. For more information about tutoring, please contact the SSC or visit the Ludden Library and Learning Commons, LIB 429.
