The Center for Writing & Rhetoric is committed to providing students with the resources to succeed in graduate school by becoming independent writers and communicators. Students can find the consultants they work best with and interact with them in a variety of instructional modes: in person, online, or by email. Students can also engage with the Center through workshops, webinars, courses, dissertation boot camps, and our embedded tutoring program.
The CWR is designed to support students during any stage in their writing process, from brainstorming to outlining, from drafting to reviewing, from polishing to presenting. And students can work with us on a range of projects, from papers to posters, from class discussions to conference presentations. The Center does not offer editing or proofreading services; rather, our consultants will help students strategize how to best approach a project — whether it is due tomorrow, next week, or in a year.
