Writing and Reading Center

The Writing and Reading Center

The Writing and Reading Center (WRC), as part of the Learning Center, is a place where MVC students can get feedback and support with reading and writing assignments for any class. You can meet with a writing consultant or instructor one-on-one during any stage of the writing process: from brainstorming and outlining to revising. The WRC also has a reading paraprofessional available to help you improve your reading, vocabulary, and comprehension skills.

At the WRC, you can make an appointment or walk-in to meet with a writing consultant or a reading paraprofessional. There are no same-day appointments. Make an appointment in advance by stopping by the Learning Center or calling (951) 571-6128.

Mission

The Writing and Reading Center (WRC) supports learning in reading and writing for all registered Moreno Valley College students at all levels and at any stage of the writing process. We provide a safe, supportive learning environment for all students, especially for students traditionally marginalized within higher education, with the goal of increasing access to and success in higher education for all students. By supporting all student writers at their individual levels, the WRC promotes literacy education and the democratization of higher education. The WRC also acknowledges the writing needs of faculty and staff on campus and will help faculty and staff to grow as writers.
