New! For Graduate Students--Starting March 5
Meet with a Faculty Consultant
To expand and enhance our one-on-one graduate-level peer tutoring, we are introducing a pilot program for graduate students who wish to meet with a faculty writing consultant to discuss graduate writing projects, e.g., preliminary examinations or dissertation proposals, MA theses or projects, dissertation chapters, or seminar papers. A supplement (not a substitute) to others’ feedback, a consultation is another way to get feedback on a particular aspect of a graduate writing project. It is also a chance to discuss individual writing practices and the rhetorical and genre-related issues entailed in graduate-level critical writing.
Like all Writing Center sessions, these consultations will be conversational and interactive, designed to help you produce your best work.
- Beginning March 5, 2014: Wednesdays 3:00-5:00 pm
- Graduate students (only) may reserve up to two 1-hour appointments per semester
- Students who miss an appointment without giving 24 hours-notice forfeit the right to this service
