The New Mexico Highlands University Writing Center offers writing support to undergraduates and graduates in all disciplines. We’ll assist you at any level of your writing and at any stage in the writing process. We’ll support you as you practice brainstorming, drafting, rewriting, and revising.
Our tutors serve as guides, rather than editors, to help you grow as an independent writer, speaker, and thinker. We believe that talking about and practicing writing are the best ways for you to develop effective writing skills.

Preparing for a Tutoring Session
You are guaranteed all the help you can get with your writing when you visit the writing center. A tutor is usually available to consult with you in order to determine how to help you. To make this session go as smooth as possible, all students are encouraged to bring the following materials with them to their tutoring session:
- A copy of your assignment sheet.
- A hard copy of the text with which you will be working (i.e., your essay).
- Your assignment on a USB flash drive.
- Any supplemental materials that may be of use during the session (textbooks, class notes, other research materials).
Though not all of these items are required, the more you have for you and your tutor to review, the greater the possibility your session will be a success.
The computer lab is open to students on a first-come basis during normal business hours. Our computers are equipped with Microsoft Office and other common programs. Due to our limited budget, students are not allowed to print in the Writing Center unless they provide their own paper.
At times, instructors reserve the lab for their classes. The lab is not available to students when an instructor has reserved the lab for his/her students.
Location: Douglas Hall 115E
At the New Mexico Highlands University Writing Center, we believe that writing confidence and mastery are fundamental to student success and that every student has something important to communicate. To this end, we provide students with the guidance and resources they need to strengthen their skills and to enjoy the writing process.
We are committed to serving undergraduate students in all disciplines with a holistic, student-centered approach to writing. Students may come to us for support at the beginning, in the middle, or near completion of their writing projects. Through one-to-one conferencing with our trained staff, students become better skilled in interpreting assigned reading and in developing and articulating their own ideas.
