Student Support Services Writing Center Mission Statement
Because written communication is vital to success in both the academic and professional world, the Student Support Services Writing Center (SSSWC) promotes Northeastern Technical College's (NETC) mission of "enhancing the employability" of its students, by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to enter four year colleges and the workforce as proficient, confident purveyors of the written word.
The SSSWC serves as an integral part of NETC's Student Support Services (SSS). To that end, its services advance the SSS mission of increasing the retention, graduation, and transfer rates of its students. We offer to students a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment to engage and reflect critically on their writing.

In an effort to provide students with opportunities to become more culturally aware, Student Support Services participants are encouraged to take advantage of the many trips made available. Cultural activities may include field trips to museums, art festivals, scientific exhibits or governmental centers.
Student Support Services offers several trips annually to tour private and public colleges and universities in South and North Carolina. Trips are typically overnight excursions and include cultural stops in metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh. Trips are free and include meals and overnight accommodations when appropriate.
