Mission

The Writing and Reading Center (WRC) at Moreno Valley College supports learning in reading and writing for all registered Moreno Valley College students at all levels and at any stage of the writing process. The WRC provides faculty and peer writing consultants for one-to-one instruction. The WRC primarily supports the lab requirements for English composition courses, giving students supplemental learning opportunities to practice the reading and writing skills they are learning in the English, ESL, and reading classes. By supporting all student writers at their individual levels, the WRC promotes literacy education and the democratization of higher education. 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. The WRC positively encourages students' growth as writers, their attitudes toward writing, and their overall academic success. The WRC also privdes access to our resources and faculty expertise for students writing in courses across the curriculum.

Philosophy

The WRC instructional staff form a team with the clasroom instructors and students, providing personalized attention that classroom instructors see as desirable but do not have time for in class. Classroom instructors, WRC instructional staff, and students collaborate to fulfill the lab requirement meaningfully and productively. Together they work to increase students' understandings of reading and writing skills. How successfully the WRC fulfills this mission is largely dependent upon both the classroom instructors' presentation of the WRC and the Instructors'-on-duty interaction with students in the WRC. Classroom instructors must communicate clearly in their syllabi how students must fulfill the lab requirement. Classroom instructors also help students communicate their specific needs and goals to the WRC instructional staff. Instructor Conference Confirmation Sheets, writing consultant conference confirmation sheets, and DLAs offer occassions for instruction and communication. Students should understand why they are going to the WRC because their understandings are critical to their success.
