A New Graduate Research Writing Center

GREW Serves graduate engineering students in their research writing through a writing course, drop-in hours, regular workshops, guest lectures, and helpful materials.

The new GREW (Graduate Research Engineering Writing) Center provides writing services for graduate students, as well as post-docs, undergraduates working in research, and their advisors for the College of Engineering.  The GREW center is run by Dr. Amanda Funai.
