Research & Writing Center

The Research & Writing Center at Souther Adventist University


The Research & Writing Center is your writing resource at SAU. We offer one-to-one, individualized writing tutorial sessions. Our peer writing consultants are dedicated, experienced student writers who are trained in the research and writing process and who excel at working with others in a professional academic environment. Wherever you are in the writing process, regardless of the course or discipline, we can help.

Each session with a writing consultant lasts 30 minutes, or if you need more time with the consultant, up to 1 hour. You and the writing consultant will read and discuss the piece of writing you are working on.
