Graduate Student Services

The OUWC isn’t just for undergraduates. Graduate students occupy a writing-rich environment, one in which they must write on demand. Our staff includes university faculty and graduate students who can offer assistance as you:
  • Draft or revise a manuscript for publication
  • Craft an assignment
  • Document accomplishments for tenure review
  • Compose a thesis or dissertation
  • Assemble a teaching portfolio
  • Construct a personal statement
  • Revise a curriculum vitae
  • Generate a proposal or mission statement
  • Prepare a syllabus, scaffold assignments, and offer feedback to student submissions
If you are about to commence your thesis or dissertation project, you will want to inquire about Dissertation 101: A Writing and Research Intervention for Graduate Writers, which is co-facilitated each semester by Sherry Wynn Perdue, Director, Oakland University Writing Center, and Anne Switzer, Outreach and Social Sciences Librarian.
