Writing Center

Many students struggle with writing, especially during the beginning of their college journey. 

The Writing Center is a great resource to help students out with all their writing needs.

Encourage your students to use the Writing Center by: 

  • mention the Writing Center on your class syllabus and assignment sheets 
  • link to our website on your D2L course site
  • invite us to visit your class and discuss our services
Early Intervention Program

Winona State utilizes a retention tool called the Early Intervention program, or EIP. This program is designed to identify struggling students, and provide them the resources they need to get back on track. 

If you’re concerned about a student, work with the WSU Behavioral Assessment & Intervention Team (B.A.I.T.). This group provide support and guidance for faculty, staff and administrators as “students of concern” emerge in classrooms, residence halls, student activities, performances and the greater Winona community.
