Researchers and scholars in all fields must write clearly and persuasively so their work can influence colleagues and reach broader audiences. Recognizing this, the Graduate School created the Office of Writing Initiatives whose mission is to promote the development of writers and writing instruction across the graduate community.
Through a multipronged approach, we strive to ensure that all Maryland graduate students develop as academic and professional writers. At the campus level, our services include the Graduate School Writing Center, English Editing for International Graduate Students (EEIGS), and a range of workshops available to all graduate students. We also support colleges and departments in their efforts to prepare students for writing within their disciplines through resources for faculty and departments.
