Writing and Public Speaking Center


Our consultants help students, faculty, staff, and alumni:

  • at all ability levels
  • from any department on campus
  • at any stage in their writing or presentation planning process
  • with all kinds of writing assignments and communication projects

Bring any information you have about the assignment and a printed copy of whatever planning or writing you've done. If you can't keep an appointment, please cancel using the online scheduler.

International Students:

For students whose first language is not English, we offer one-hour appointments. Use the online scheduler to view availability and make appointments. International students are also welcome to sign-up for standard half-hour sessions. 

Graduate Students:

We help with graduate-level projects, seminar papers, conference presentations, and thesis/dissertation work. Reserve your appointment here.

Online and Distance Students:

To reserve an online appointment, visit our online scheduler. Shortly before your appointment, you'll receive an email with a link to your online meeting. To get the most out of your session, please have your assignment prompt and whatever you've written so far open on your desktop. Plan to use a device with a screen large enough to see documents. 

Faculty and Staff:

We work with faculty and staff both on their own writing and presentations and on the assignments they give to students. Visit our Resources for Faculty and Staff page for more information.
