"At the UNLV Writing Center, our writer-centered approach fosters an understanding of writing as a series of choices writers make based on context, audience, purpose, and genre. We work with writers in any discipline on any writing task (except for legal documents) to help them develop, improve, and transfer writing skills into their personal, academic, professional, and civic lives.
The Writing Center is primarily a site for teaching and learning. We do not edit or proofread for writers. Instead, we consult with writers at any level of expertise to help them develop their own strategies for making informed choices about writing. Because writing is one of the chief ways we create, communicate, and critique knowledge, the Writing Center plays a central role in the life of the university."
"A recent report on graduate writing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas illuminated a number of challenges that UNLV graduate students face in their graduate writing processes. Among the top of these challenges is finding and scheduling time to write. Furthermore, the majority of respondents indicated that graduate students would benefit from help in writing papers/theses/dissertations, in developing strong writing skills, being provided with writing support and resources, and having a forum for sharing research and/or writing. The UNLV Graduate College, in partnership with UNLV Libraries and Writing Center has created this page to help meet the writing needs of our graduate students."
"The Grad Rebel Writing Boot Camp is a week-long program that provides graduate students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become more efficient and successful writers. It also provides students with the opportunity to learn about the different types of writing groups as well as how to successfully start and maintain their own writing group. The program is a collaborative effort between the Graduate College, UNLV Libraries, and UNLV Writing Center."
"The Graduate College’s The Grad Academy is the central hub for evidence-based graduate student professional and career development programming and nonacademic advising. The Grad Academy offers more than 60 workshops, 11 signature events, nonacademic advising, and career support each year in addition to offering four co-curricular certifications and 10 programs. All of these are free professional and career development opportunities for graduate and professional students."
