Our Graduate Student Writing Services

Resources For Graduate Faculty

The Writing Center facilitates in-class spotlight workshops to help students become successful writers while collaborating and participating in their own learning. We come into your class and demonstrate what our face-to-face tutoring appointments can do for you. In this manner, everyone in the class gains an understanding of how they can become better writers while also gaining a perspective on how to talk about writing.

Check out our faculty resource page to learn more about our services to support you and your students!

Graduate Tutoring Appointments

The Writing Center offers tutoring throughout the entire writing process. Since papers involved in graduate programs are typically extensive (e.g., portfolios and thesis projects), the Writing Center offers long-term tutoring to assist with revisions. We encourage you to make multiple appointments with the same tutor on a weekly or biweekly basis in order to get the best service and advice possible. Our tutoring appointments can be either face to face or online, depending on your needs. Sessions are focused on your concerns and are intended to help you grow in your writing abilities.

A Note on Editing: We want to help you at any point of the writing process — understanding assignment directions, drafting and outlining, or revisions — but we are not an editing service, so we do not offer line-by-line editing, even for long graduate projects. Additionally, we cannot make recommendations for outside professional editing services, since we are unable to monitor the quality of external sources.
