CRLA recertifies Blinn College Writing Center

June 5, 2017

The Blinn College Writing Center has been approved for renewal of certification by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).

CRLA is an international organization that certifies writing centers and tutoring agencies based on specific criteria for tutoring, methodology, and resources. The Writing Center is authorized to certify tutors at all three training levels recognized by CRLA.

The Blinn Writing Center has operations on both the Brenham and Bryan campuses, with a total of approximately 25 professional and degreed tutors. More than 5,500 Blinn College students receive professional tutoring services from the Writing Center each year.

In addition to providing one-on-one tutoring, the Writing Center offers workshops on a variety of writing-related topics, assistance to students working on transfer essays, orientation sessions for visiting classes, assistance to instructors in Parallel Studies labs, and presentations to visiting high school students and prospective Blinn students and their families.
