Welcome to Sweetland

The Sweetland Center for Writing, a comprehensive writing center, exists to support student writing at all levels and in all forms and modes. Sweetland oversees the College of LSA’s First-Year and Upper-Level writing requirements, offers one-to-one tutoring for undergraduate and graduate students in our faculty-led Writing Workshop and undergraduate Peer Writing Center, and teaches writing courses from the undergraduate to the graduate level. Sweetland provides support for all multilingual and international undergraduate students. Sweetland offers the Minor in Writing, teaches and supports new media and multimodal forms of writing, and runs the invitational Dissertation Writing Institute and Fellows Seminar. Sweetland offers consultations and workshops for instructors and students across the University, and conducts research on writing.


We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Sweetland needs you—because the world needs Victors.
