Mission and History

Established in January 2006, The Oakland University Writing Center was made possible with seed money from the Mitzelfeld family and with a founding grant from Joan Rosen, professor emerita of English, and her husband, Robert. The Joan Rosen Writing Studio was dedicated at 212 Kresge Library on October 23, 2006.


The Oakland University Writing Center provides individual and small group support for students, faculty and staff. Consultants and administrators at the center seek to engender independent writing practice in a friendly and welcoming environment. The writing center supplements, but does not replace, the array of communication and writing courses offered by various departments. A university program serving all clients regardless of discipline or task, the Oakland University Writing Center is the "Write Space" for the entire campus community.
