Accelerate Your Dissertation

Are you working on a dissertation and in need of support? Check out Accelerate Your Dissertation, monthly workshops hosted by the UAB Graduate School. This semester's Accelerate Your Dissertation sessions will be on Wednesday, January 20; Wednesday, February 17; and Wednesday, March 16. Click the links for more information about each session. All sessions run from 11:00-1:00 in Sterne Library 174 or 163. In addition to attending Accelerate Your Dissertation sessions, dissertation writers are encouraged to make appointments with UWC tutors for additional one-on-one help. 

Workshop Requests

The UWC mainly provides one-on-one consultations for students, but occasionally, a workshop with an entire class is appropriate. The UWC can create workshops for courses upon request. If you request a workshop for your class, you can expect UWC staff to work with you to create a workshop that best fits your students' specific needs. If you would like to request a workshop for your course, please contact UWC Director Jaclyn Wells at wellsj@uab.edu.

Classroom Visits

Faculty members can request classroom visits to inform their students about the writing center. In only 15 minutes, we can explain our services and encourage students to take advantage of what we offer. We are happy to visit your classroom or hold the orientation in the UWC—your choice! Please contact Jaclyn Wells for more information.
