Welcome to the Writing Center!

The University Writing Program (UWP) Writing Center serves all graduate and undergraduate students and alumni in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering. We offer individual conferences with trained peer tutors on any type of writing. The center is located in Gilman Hall 230.

The UWP Writing Center has also partnered with the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Education to offer peer tutoring for graduate students through their schools.

Statement on Linguistic Justice

At the Johns Hopkins University Writing Center, we see linguistic justice as essential to our work. Therefore, we welcome all languages and their natural diversity, understanding that a writer’s identity and language are inherently connected. We strive to assist writers to acquire the discourses of the academy while also resisting the homogenization or norming of student expression. We encourage our writers to use their authentic voices in our center, throughout the academy, and beyond.
