The Graduate Writing Center, a branch of the Office of Student Affairs, offers a variety of writing services to the Teachers College community. During private consultations, visitors have the opportunity to focus on any aspect of their writing with one of our qualified advisors. The types of assistance offered are on both the micro and macro levels, including brainstorming, organizing, drafting, as well as writing coaching and instruction. The Graduate Writing Center also offers workshops throughout the year on topics that meet the wide-reaching needs of the TC population, as well as writing solidarity events and retreats for dissertation writers. The mission of the Graduate Writing Center is to support visitors' development as writers, rather than serve as a proofreading or editing service.

  • We provide qualified writing advisors to assist with a variety of writing tasks. 
  • We support students in practicing the many strategies effective writers use, from brainstorming to implementation.
  • We promote learning new writing skills for professional development.


The Graduate Writing Center is now hiring Writing Advisors! The job description and application for Writing Advisors can be found on the Teachers College Career Site under job posting 0605922. Feel free to e-mail us with any questions at
