Code of Ethics

  • The Learning Hub is a neutral, non-evaluative space.
  • The direction of one-to-one sessions should be driven primarily by students, who should be granted agency to use their time as they deem best suits their needs.
  • Learning Hub sessions should provide writers a comfortable space for taking risks and asking questions.
  • All students thrive on encouragement. Our consultants strive to identify student writers’ strengths and to help them build upon them.
  • All Learning Hub session notes are confidential unless the writer approves of our sharing of session notes.
  • We value our partnerships with faculty members, with whom we share the common goal of enhancing student learning over time.
  • A Learning Hub session can provide an opportunity to identify and address errors in a student’s work, but Learning Hub consultants, students, and faculty members should have reasonable expectations for the pace of a student’s development and improvement.
  • Referrals from faculty members and advisors are vital in helping students access our services, but when the Learning Hub is asked to be part of the referral process, writers might not view the Learning Hub as a neutral, non-evaluative space.
