Support for Graduate Faculty

The Graduate Writing Center also supports faculty who teach and mentor graduate students.

Contact Nancy Welch, Professor of English and Graduate Writing Coordinator, to

  • Invite a graduate writing consultant to introduce the Graduate Writing Center to students in your class or program
  • Arrange for a special topic workshop for your seminar or program.
  • Consult about designing assignments or integrating writing support into your classes or lab
  • Discuss ways the Graduate Writing Center can support your students in group or other special writing projects
  • Learn about Skype consultation support for students in a distance degree program or for students who are working away from campus
  • Consult about writing supports for international graduate students

You can also help promote the Graduate Writing Center by including this paragraph on your course syllabus, course Blackboard, or program website:

UVM's Graduate Writing Center offers free one-on-one and small-group consultations to graduate students working on a wide range of projects: seminar papers, reports, proposals, poster presentations, and more. Students can sit down with a graduate writing consultant at any stage of a project, from initial planning to final revisions and editing. Visit our appointments page to meet the graduate writing consultants and learn how to make an appointment. Skype appointments are also available! Watch your email inbox too for announcements of Sunday Writing Retreats, workshops on such topics as Literature Reviews and Thesis and Dissertation Proposals, and camps for dissertation and thesis writers!

Faculty recommendations help us identify the best graduate student writers on campus to serve (working up to 10 hours per week) as graduate writing consultants. If you have a graduate student you'd like to recommend, contact Nancy Welch (
