Overview

CAS gives students feedback to empower them to grow into stronger, more confident writers over time. CAS can assist you in interpreting assignments, organizing and planning your writing process, and refining and improving your grammar and writing skills. The aim of consultants is not to "error-proof" papers, but to assist students in recognizing strengths and weaknesses of their writing. By revising in light of this knowledge, students will better understand the writing process and have strategies to improve patterns of error in their writing. We expect that the learning that happens in one appointment will transfer to students’ next paper. Gradually, students will be able to transform their writing on their own as capable "re-writers."
