The University of Iowa Writing Center was started by Carrie Stanley in 1934, making it one of the first writing centers in the United States. The Center has a long-standing tradition of one-to-one instruction in rhetorical and communication skills. An understanding of how discourse, whether of writing, speaking, reading, or listening, is both purpose and audience-driven has been a hallmark of the Writing Center and its host department, Rhetoric.
