The Writing and Learning Center (WLC) provides one-stop academic support to the Franklin community at large.

In accordance with the mission of the university, the Center’s primary goal is to help students learn how to make the most of their academic experience at Franklin so as to effectively "engage the world." 

With a non-directive and holistic approach to academic support, the WLC facilitates learning, language and writing opportunities across, up and beyond the curriculum.

In addition to helping students become better learners, WLC staff members work closely with other constituents of the university to provide leadership opportunities for qualified students through Life Long Learning Scholarship awards and through the Academic Mentor and International Student Mentor programs.

We collaborate with the Office of Student Life to promote career-related writing skills and work closely with the Accessibility Coordinator to help support students with disabilities. In conjunction with faculty, the WLC organizes class visits, workshops, and individual consultations to support writing, learning and research at both the undergraduate and graduate level, particularly within the First Year Experience Program.
