Writing centers, mentoring, survey research, high education, high impact practices
This presentation draws inspiration from the Meaningful Writing Project and other studies of writing center usage. Instead of exploring who is coming in for tutorials, we study where students are getting support outside of writing centers. We confirm earlier research that Purdue students seek out writing help from parents and friends, and we hope to begin programming that empowers bother groups to act as better writing mentors.
