About the HUB

Our Mission

The HUB celebrates and supports SCU writers and writing. It is primarily a place for learning where, at any stage of the writing process, writers can get support from trained writing partners whose goal it is to empower SCU's students, faculty, staff, and community partners so they can communicate ideas effectively. In fulfilling its mission, the HUB parallels SCU's larger goal of educating the whole person since writers work in one-on-one sessions that are tailored to their learning needs and that take into account their individual backgrounds and personal goals.

What can the HUB do for you?

Trained HUB writing partners can help you to understand what assignments require, to determine what you want to say and how to say it, and how you might revise the final project to make it better than you thought possible. No matter the writing challenge, we are here to help you become a better writer -- one paper at a time.

The HUB provides

Support for Students through drop-in sessions for writers at all stages of the writing process

Enrichment Opportunities by mentoring writing partners through independent studies courses, research projects, and attendance at conferences

Recognition for Exemplary Writing by sponsoring awards at SCU

Support for Faculty by co-sponsoring workshops on assignment design and integrating effective writing assignments within curricula

Support for Staff by co-sponsoring workshops on public speaking and writing in professional contexts and providing trained “Hired Pens” who can assist SCU departments by editing or composing written texts

Community Service by co-sponsoring off campus projects designed to foster excellent writing and social justice in literary contexts
