Inclusivity Statement

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Statement

The Duquesne University Writing Center strives to provide a welcoming, inclusive, equitable and accessible environment for learning writing. Writers of all ages, abilities, majors and backgrounds are invited to visit to talk about their writing. Because we believe writing makes meaning in the world, involves ethical decisions and reflects and reinforces power structures, we provide writing instruction that respects difference, individual voice and identity. At the same time, we recognize the importance of helping writers succeed within diverse educational, career and civic contexts, including contexts that value what is known as standard Western academic writing.
