Welcome to the web home of the University of North Alabama’s Center for Writing Excellence, housed on the 2nd floor of The Commons. The Center for Writing Excellence maintains International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC), sponsored by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). This means that each writing consultant must undergo 10 to 20 hours of detailed preparation and training in order to service the needs of all students on campus, from undergraduate to graduate.

The Center’s mission is three-fold:
