In accordance with the mission of Bloomfield College “to prepare students to attain academic, personal and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society,” the mission of the Writing Center is to enable students to attain excellence in all forms and levels of writing during their college careers and, as a result, in their chosen professions. Consultants at the Writing Center utilize a student-centered approach and collaborate with writers to meet the writers’ goals. The ultimate goal of the Center is to make Bloomfield College students conscientious, ethical, engaged, and independent writers and citizens.

The Bloomfield College Writing Center is a place where all types of writing at all levels can develop and flourish. The Writing Center invites faculty, student writers, and writing consultants to collaborate in the broadening and deepening of writing practices; it is also a site for inquiry, creativity, and excellence in written expression in all disciplines. The Writing Center works with other Bloomfield College departments to support excellence in writing throughout the campus and is available to serve faculty and staff who wish to obtain any form of assistance in their professional writing.
