Mastery in Written and Oral Communication


The Benedict College Writing Center is devoted to enhancing student written and oral performances toward their optimal academic and nonacademic success. Thus, we provide individualized assessments and consultations to promote mastery of Standard American English (SAE) across all interdisciplinary programs of study via thoughtful and constructive scholarly discourse. Furthermore, the reading and writing processes become venues for students to transform their lives and the global community. By developing their voices and talents as "powers for good in society" beyond the twenty-first century, BC Tigers excel in every life domain. Reading comprehension, writing acumen, listening skills, and critical thinking development are benchmarks that guide every assessment and consultation beyond the Benedict College experience.

On behalf of the Office of Academic Support Services and the Tiger Academic Support Centers, the Benedict College Writing Center welcomes all faculty, staff, and students.

The Writing Center faculty and support staff can be contacted at (803) 705-5020.

Perspectives on the Power of Words:

"Look at what's happening in this world. Every day there's something exciting or disturbing to write about. With all that's going on, how could I stop?"

Gwendolyn Brooks — Author & Poet, the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1950.

"Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose. It is seeking that he who wishes may know the cosmic secrets of the world and they that dwell therein."

Zora Neal Hurston— American folklorist and writer associated with the Harlem Renaissance.
