The Graduate Resource Center (GRC), in collaboration with several departments and programs, offers a wide array of free academic support services to all graduate and professional students at the University of New Mexico including: one-on-one writing and statistics consultations, writing support groups, writing camps, academic and professional development workshops, fellowship programs, a student conference, and graduate student orientations. The GRC further supports undergraduate recruitment initiatives at UNM by providing workshops and one-on-one guidance in planning for graduate school. GRC graduate consultants are graduate and professional students enrolled at UNM, recommended by UNM faculty, and certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
The GRC offers individual appointments for discussing and receiving feedback on writing and research projects. Schedule appointments at Mesa Vista Hall, Suite 1057 or by calling (505) 277-1407.
Our graduate writing consultants lead group workshops in which students writing their theses and dissertations receive regular feedback from peers who use similar methodologies. For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer designated graduate workshops throughout the semester on topics such as writing genres (i.e. literature reviews and proposals), academic skills (i.e. data analysis), and professional skills and leadership development (i.e. conference presentations and thesis/dissertation defense). GRC workshops are open to all students. View the schedule of current workshop offerings.
Under normal circumstances, your graduate paper of 5,000 words or fewer will be reviewed and returned to you within 72 hours (three business days) of receiving a submission, Monday through Friday. Click here for more information.
The GRC hosts a series of professional and academic writing camps that provide graduate students with an ideal environment free from everyday distractions in which to devote their energy to writing.
Consultants provide support for multiple forms of writing such as annotated bibliographies, theses/dissertations, conference papers, presentations, journal articles, and proposals.
Graduate students using statistical analyses may meet with a GRC consultant for assistance in interpreting and communicating results. Consultants can also assist with statistical software and/or provide additional resources. Students can set up appointments or just drop-in during our business hours: Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. And also during our extended drop-in hours, on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
