Support for Graduate Students
In spring 2023, the Writing Center plans to make a short menu of writing support services available to doctoral students at Cabrini University on a limited fee-for-service basis.
- Each item below is priced for a single semester and must be used within the spring 2023 semester. These fees are non-refundable, even if the student elects not to use all services or withdraws.
- Services are provided and coordinated by Rebecca Steffy, Ph.D., Assistant Director of Academic Enrichment.
Students interested in any of the services described below are encouraged to register by Friday, January 20, 2023, by completing this form. Students will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Consultation Package ($500)
This package is designed to be a flexible support relevant to students at a variety of stages in their doctoral program journey. It includes a 30-minute welcome session to set goals for our work together, along with six hour-long one-on-one consultations. Consultations can focus on a variety of topics as appropriate to your stage and project, including but not limited to developing and revising argumentation, organization, style and clarity, or grammar and mechanics.
Writer’s Retreat ($50)
Save the date for Saturday, March 18, 8:30 am – 12:00 pm, to join your peers for a concentrated writing session. Participants will set goals for their writing time, devote two and a half hours to their project, and then rejoin their peers to celebrate progress and plan for next steps.
Facilitated Peer Writing Group ($350)
This interdisciplinary writing group is open to doctoral students in Education and Organization Development and Change, and is capped at 6 participants. The group will meet virtually on Tuesday evenings for 90 minutes every other week for one semester (7 meetings total), 7:00 – 8:30 pm, beginning Tuesday, January 31. Built around giving and receiving peer feedback on works in progress, the purpose of the group is to help students develop scholarly writing skills, encourage productive writing habits over time, grow confidence in identities as scholars and researchers, and to cultivate a sense of community.
