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.

Jumpstart Thesis/Dissertation Bootcamp

Jumpstart is our four-day, writing intensive bootcamp for graduate students working on a research proposal, thesis, or dissertation. We offer the program four times each academic year. Click here to find out more about the program, check dates for this year's bootcamps, and learn how to apply.

Graduate Writing Workshop Series

We offer a five-part workshop series each semester. Join us for informative, interactive workshops that address graduate-level writing and presentation concerns. Click here for the schedule.


Many graduate students appreciate a dedicated, weekly writing time. Join other writers from Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer from 9:00am to noon in Lommasson 272 (next door to the WPSC).
