In this paper, the operating system and operation process of Youngsan University's writing center were reviewed, and the operation status and performance were analyzed. Based on the research results, the direction for the development of the university writing center, along with implications that can be helpful in composing the content and methods of university writing education, were suggested.
First, in order to understand the operating status of the writing center, detailed information such as the organizational chart, the training programs operated for one year at the writing center, the business plan, the publicity poster, the training program application form, and the online homepage screen were presented.
Next, the level of satisfaction of the students who participated in the writing center education program was analyzed. The satisfaction of the students who participated in the writing camp was generally high. However, 'enhancement of competency' and 'improvement of motivation' showed a somewhat low level of satisfaction. Also, this research confirmed that the satisfaction level of science and engineering students was slightly lower than that of humanities and social science students according to the students' majors. In order to solve this problem, various themes of the camp were organized, and writing educational content for science and engineering students was proposed.
As a result of analyzing the students' online correction application types, this study confirmed that the students had a high demand for guidance regarding paragraph composition. Accordingly, this study argued that the direction of writing instruction should change from instruction that is centered on getting results to instruction that is centered on the writing process itself.
