The Writing Studio opened in Fall 2012 as an additional source of writing assistance outside of the classroom for students. The Writing Studio served as an integral part of the college’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) On the Write Path. The mission of the Writing Studio was to strengthen writing skills for all JCC students and to help students become more effective, confident, and independent writers by providing assistance with writing in courses across the disciplines. To support the mission, the Writing Studio provided collaborative group sessions, individual mentoring sessions, workshops for students and faculty, and faculty consultations.
The Writing Studio was housed in Wilson Bldg., Room 1118, across the hall from a second support center, the Academic Skills Center. Both the Writing Studio and Academic Skills Center served students with their writing needs.
After the QEP ended in May 2017, the Writing Studio continued to operate through Fall 2017. In January 2018 the Academic Skills Center relocated from Wilson Building to the first floor of the Learning Resource Center, adjacent to the library. With the relocation of the Academic Skills Center and its proximity to the library, the Writing Studio officially closed in December 2017. All of the research and writing services, previously offered by the Writing Studio, were merged with services provided by the newly relocated Academic Skills Center and library.
Students seeking writing assistance should visit the library or Academic Skills Center, located on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center, adjacent to the library.
