Writing Centers Feel the Crunch

Makau, Lynn; Schonberg, Eliana; Mendelsohn, Susan E.

Writing centers are feeling the effects of budget reductions across higher education nationwide. Like other student services that don’t offer credits or produce revenue, writing centers are particularly vulnerable to budget cuts. Community colleges, four-year colleges, and universities across the country are asking writing centers to make hard choices–choices that will affect consultant hiring, pay, and benefits as well as hours of operation, services, technological resources, and administration.
