For Graduate Students—Meet with a Faculty Consultant
To expand and enhance our one-on-one graduate-level peer tutoring, we offer exclusively to graduate students the opportunity to meet confidentially with a volunteer faculty consultant to discuss graduate writing projects, e.g., preliminary examinations or dissertation proposals, MA theses or projects, dissertation chapters, or seminar papers.
Faculty consultations supplement others’ feedback, another resource to help you gain perspective on your writing project. These consultations give you the opportunity to discuss writing strategies and practices, and the rhetorical and genre-related issues entailed in graduate-level writing.
Just as with all Writing Center sessions, faculty consultations are conversational and interactive, designed to help you produce your best work.
This service is offered in addition to our peer tutoring services.
