For Graduate Students

Individual Consultations by Appointment

The most effective help we offer all students is one-to-one consultations. We support graduate students as they work on seminar papers, proposals, conference presentations, and thesis/dissertation work. Depending on the project, we meet with graduate students for half- or full-hour appointments. Many graduate students prefer to set up a recurring appointment with the same consultant.

Writers' Retreat, March 4 and March 16

Join fellow grad student writers for a day dedicated to your writing projects. We’ll meet from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, opening and closing with instruction and planning, with the bulk of the day spent in independent writing time and individual consultations.
