* COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the recent campus closure, the UWC will continue to provide only Email Writing Appointments. 

Your coaches are trained to cultivate purpose-driven writers, communicators, and influencers (see People). They are here to help you develop the necessary process and strategies to become a more rhetorical writer, who communicates clearly and persuasively (see Mission). They will NOT “fix” your grammar or paper because they are not your editors. But they will provide useful resources and help you to recognize areas of improvement.
