Vision and Mission

SUNY Poly’s Writing and Communications Center (WCC) looks to serve the university community by helping students build upon their working knowledge of fundamental writing and communication skills i.e., developing writing processes and developing literacy, and critical analytical skills. 

Offering flexible, student-centered practices and collaborative work, the WCC’s Professional Writing Consultants (PWCs) are dedicated to the center’s emphasis of ongoing, long-term improvement.

Fostering collaboration with our colleagues across campus, we aim to develop and offer a student-centered, self-sustaining community that will support SUNY Poly's exploration of discipline-specific writing throughout the university.

Building bridges within, across, and to the university community provides students, faculty, staff, and Mohawk Valley community members many unique opportunities to see their work as a value-creating practice.


The WCC offers 45-minute scheduled consultations and 30-minute drop-in consultations. We also offer conferences in both face-to-face and virtual formats. For more information, see our Visiting page

The following are some common assignments or topics with which we can assist:

  • Traditional essays
  • PowerPoints
  • Creative writing 
  • Journals and responses
  • Bibliographies and outlines
  • Anything written for which we can reasonably give feedback regarding its formatting, grammar, syntax, organization, and/or general readability
  • Brainstorming sessions
