About Us

Our Mission

We support University of Montana students, alumni, faculty, and staff as they become more versatile, deliberate, and effective communicators. We provide a respectful, interdisciplinary, collaborative and safe learning environment for all members of our community to grow as they work on a wide variety of academic, professional, and creative communication tasks.

Our Location

Our administrative offices are on the third floor of Aber Hall but our in-person tutoring takes place primarily at our tutoring center in the Mansfield Library (room 322). During the academic year we offer drop-in hours twice-weekly at the Branch Center and the Payne Family Native American Center, as well as scheduled appointment hours at the Learning Center at Missoula College. With all scheduled appointments, students have the option to attend online.
