Located in the Securian Learning Commons on the second floor of the Kathryn A. Martin Library, the Academic Writing and Learning Center (AWLC) provides academic courses and services designed to help all members of the campus community reach their academic and professional goals. We work in partnership with UMD’s administration, staff, faculty, and students to offer four programs including the Tutoring Center, the Writers' Workshop (writing center), SSP learning and leadership courses, and UST 1000: Learning in Community (first-year experience).
