Not only does the Writing Center offer writing assistance for all CUA students, it also offers one of the university’s most unique leadership and learning opportunities: the Writing Center Undergraduate Tutor Program.

Writing Center Undergraduate Tutors expand their intellectual, professional, and interpersonal skills through their training and work in the Writing Center. Tutors assist fellow students with their writing and, in the process, strengthen their own abilities to write and communicate. In addition to engaging in one-on-one tutoring in the Writing Center, tutors also receive ongoing professional development training and are encouraged to develop and present original research at national conferences. Tutoring work in the Writing Center develops and highlights skills valuable to future employers and graduate schools.

Becoming a Writing Center Undergraduate Tutor is both an honor and a serious commitment. In order to apply to become a Writing Center Undergraduate Tutor, you must first be nominated by a professor who is familiar with your writing and interpersonal skills. If you are interested in becoming an Undergraduate Tutor, we encourage you to ask a professor to nominate you when we open the recruitment process in the spring semester. We will invite all nominated students who are in good standing with the university to submit an application to join the program in the fall of the following year. If you are nominated and are interested in becoming a tutor, we invite you to attend one of our information sessions, typically offered in the middle of the spring semester. We do not normally hire tutors to begin working during the spring semester.
