Our Graduate Student Writing Services
Resources For Graduate Faculty
The Writing Center facilitates class spotlight workshops to help students become successful writers while collaborating and participating in their own learning. We demonstrate for your class what our 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.

Connect With Our Graduate Assistant
The Writing Center has a graduate assistant specifically tasked with helping you develop as graduate writers. The Graduate Assistant seeks to promote your success by addressing your particular needs. We provide specific support in the following ways:
- Offering specialized tutoring aimed at breaking down the expectations of graduate writing
- Providing long-term support for students working on large projects
- Maintaining flexible hours to accommodate graduate students’ schedule
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 appointments are available online to meet you wherever you happen to be located. 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.
