Graduate Writing Support Program Mission Statement

Lehigh University’s Graduate Writing Support Program fosters relationships across the campus community. We accept the basic premise that writing conventions vary across discipline and according to writer, audience, and purpose. We work to build understanding of this premise across campus while co-constructing writing support best-practices with faculty, staff, and students from across the disciplines.

The Graduate Writing Support Program believes peer writing facilitators practice a skill that can be learned and continually revised, shifting to meet the unique needs of the moment. We constantly work to understand the individual and disciplinary writing needs of all graduate student writers, while espousing the belief that there is no one perfect practice that helps all writers in all situations. Thus, the Graduate Writing Support Program invites all graduate-level writers-in-progress to participate in individualized writing consultation sessions and collaborative learning activities. We believe writing support initiatives are dynamic interpersonal interactions between dedicated individuals wherein both become leader and learner. 

The Graduate Writing Support Program promises the graduate student writers of Lehigh University access to thoughtful programming and activities that will promote their growth as academic writers. Such programming will include consultant training, individual consultations, an annual Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT), and the facilitation of writing retreats, writing groups, and writing workshops for graduate students and faculty members.
