The reformed Bachelor and Master studies leave only little room for extensively developing and improving the individual writing competence. But at the same time, literal competences play a significant role at university, in scientific education and in the daily business environment in our current information and media based society. Our Center aims at closing this gap by promoting the individual writing competence of RWTH Aachen university students and thus endow graduates with a complete repertoire of key skills as part of the 'Exzellenzinitiative'. This includes the ability to compose professional academic and non-academic texts as well as professional competences themselves.
