The Graduate School strives to ensure that all Maryland graduate students develop as academic and professional writers. At the campus level, their services include the Graduate School Writing Center, English Editing for International Graduate Students (EEIGS), and a range of workshops available to all graduate students. They also support colleges and departments in their efforts to prepare students for writing within their disciplines through resources for faculty and departments. Find workshops, resources, and more at gradschool.umd.edu/students/opportunities-success/writing-initiatives.
The GSWC enacts the Graduate School mission, “Advancing graduate education. Enhancing the graduate student experience,” by providing opportunities for conversations about writing across the graduate community. They offer support for graduate students at every stage of their development as academic and professional writers who can, in turn, fulfill the university’s mission of sharing research, educational, cultural, and technological strengths with the broader community. They accomplish this through a range of services and programs, including Thesis & Dissertation Retreats, Consultations with GSWC fellows, Regular “Write-in” sessions, Workshops on common graduate writing requirements, Resources for writing in the disciplines, and Supporting Writing Groups.
