The choice of location for a new Writing Center is one of great importance as it will affect how the center is integrated into the ethos of an academic community. At Asbury Theological Seminary, the new Writing Center (opened in Fall 2016) was placed under the auspices of the B.L. Fisher Library. This placement has proven to be very beneficial, in large part because of its proximity to the Research Services department.

Research and Writing are integral skills, which cannot be separated in an academic environment. Research informs writing; the writing process directs the research. By placing the Writing Center directly in the library, literally across the hall from Research Services, Asbury Theological Seminary has strategically placed both departments for mutual benefit.

In this presentation, we will explore the reasons behind this decision, the details of its implementation, and the benefits experienced by Asbury students. We will then open the floor for questions and a general discussion of our program and similar programs nationwide.
