Writing Resources

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.
