Welcome to Elon’s Center for Writing Excellence

Prominently located on the first floor of Belk Library, the Center for Writing Excellence—comprising the Writing Center and Writing Across the University–is both a physical hub and a symbol of our university’s commitment to the centrality of writing to academic, professional, and civic success.
