Office of Student Writing and Learning

​The Office of Student Writing and Learning is TCSPP's new home for all writing and academic support services. 

Our mission is to engage students in their learning process, to improve their self-efficacy for writing and learning, and to help them become more effective communicators. We believe learning is a life-long process and that skills acquired and honed while students at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology will enhance their academic, professional, and personal lives. 

The OSWL is a place where students of all degree levels and disciplines can feel safe and supported in developing their skills, a place that is free from judgment, and a place where the processes of inquiry and incremental improvement are valued above all else. In line with the Vision and Values of The Chicago School, the OSWL provides innovative services and learning resources to assist certificate, bachelor, master, and doctoral students on their path to professional careers.
