Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the SMSU Writing Center! We’re glad you are exploring our web site and finding out more about what the Writing Center can offer.

My mission as the Director of the SMSU Writing Center is to ensure that all students are welcomed and supported by our staff. The SMSU Writing Center serves all SMSU students, including those who enrolled in College Now. We support students of all majors, programs, and disciplines at any stage of the writing process.

SMSU Writing Center tutors are highly trained and invested in the success of their peers.  Tutors participate in a five-week practicum and receive ongoing support each term.  Many tutors are prospective educators who are invested in teaching and learning. 

I invite anyone who is interested in writing, student services, higher education, or teaching to consider joining or team.

As an integral part of the SMSU community, the Writing Center is a resource that is designed for you and your success.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you ever have questions, comments, or concerns about our mission.

Yours in writing,

Michael Albright, Ph.D.
