The Graduate School at Texas Tech University is opening the Graduate Student Writing Center, dedicated to developing graduate student writing and research at the university. All graduate students can receive assistance with any writing assignment or task, including theses, dissertations, articles for publication and fellowship applications.
“I am very excited to initiate the Graduate Student Writing Center and to welcome Kristin Messuri as associate director,” Mark Sheridan, dean of the Graduate School, said. “The Graduate Student Writing Center will be a valuable resource to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars for the preparation of disquisitions, scholarly articles and fellowship applications.”
The Graduate Student Writing Center will offer writing workshops and independent writing hours. The first workshop, “Battling Writer's Block,” will be from 1-3 p.m. March 6. Students must email Messuri to register, as only 20 students will be able to participate.
Independent writing hours will be held from 3-5 p.m. every Monday. During this time graduate students may use the writing center as a work space, while Messuri will be available to answer questions. Students who prefer one-on-one tutoring can email Messuri to schedule an appointment
The Graduate School Writing Center, which is in room 43 of the Administration Building, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The Graduate School at Texas Tech University offers unlimited opportunity for advancement with more than 160 different masters and doctoral degree programs complemented by interdisciplinary programs from 50 specialized centers and institutes.
More than 5,300 graduate and professional students are currently enrolled in the Graduate School.
From toxic waste research to archaeology, from land-use programs to nationally known laser fingerprint detection studies, the Graduate School offers unlimited opportunity for aspiring scholars.Twitter
