Fall Graduate Writing Center Workshops

Dear Students,

While the Teachers College Doctoral Council does its absolute best to bring you programming that meets your needs and interests as doctoral students in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, time and resources prevent us from bringing you everything you requested as part of the pre-semester survey we administered. Fortunately, other organizations and departments on campus offer a wide range of events that fill gaps we are unable to fill.

The Tempe Graduate Writing Center recently sent us their Workshop list for October and November. If you are interested in attending any of these events, please call (480) 965-4272. Also, check out the other Graduate Writing Centers on the Downtown, West, and Polytechnic campuses. Their schdules should now be available.
