We support students and faculty in all aspects of written and spoken communication.

Students, we can meet with you one-on-one or in small groups as you draft and revise writing projects and oral presentations.

You can visit us at any stage in your drafting process—from brainstorming to drafting, for big conceptual changes or minor sentence polishing. Bring in anything you’re working on: assignments for class, personal writing projects, extracurricular speaking engagements. We work with students from every academic subject. Our Writing Fellows have been extensively trained to give you helpful advice about all your writing and speaking projects!

Make an appointment now.

We also support faculty who want to enhance their writing and speaking pedagogy. Check out our Resources for Faculty, and contact the Director for more information: targondezzi@ursinus.edu
