Dr. Delma McLeod-Porter, Director The Write to Excellence Center (WTE Center), located in Drew Hall 234, is a vital part of the new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) writing-across-the curriculum initiative. Open approximately 45 hours a week, the WTE Center offers feedback on written work for all McNeese students, faculty, and staff. The WTE Center’s mission is to facilitate academic success by aiding all students in becoming better writers. Collaboration is the key to successful writing of all kinds, and trained tutors will work with students to assist them in thinking critically about their own writing. While tutors will not correct errors or write papers, they will offer suggestions on how to make writing stronger. All students from first-year students to graduate students are invited to visit the Write to Excellence Center. Special topic workshops related to writing will be offered on Friday afternoons. Any student may attend and participate in these workshops conducted by faculty from a variety of disciplines and by professionals from the local community. First-year students writing academic essays for the first time are strongly encouraged to work with WTE Center tutors. Developmental writers will fulfill their writing lab requirements in the WTE Center. Hours of operation will be posted on the MSU homepage and at the WTE Center.
