VWC Mission and Philosophy:

The VWC strives to support Antioch students throughout their programs by welcoming and supporting all writers to express themselves in their academic work. Our feedback is structured around peer readership to foster collaborative learning, and framed with the principle of respecting individual writers and voices. The VWC is committed to language diversity and furthering antiracism at Antioch by understanding and advocating against linguistic discrimination. Similarly, the VWC is committed to inclusive support for writers of all abilities by adapting our feedback to writers’ individual needs. Finally, the VWC is dedicated to ongoing growth in our own practice and to confidentiality in our feedback to writers.
