Graduate Writing Centre

One of the roles of the EGSA executive is to advocate for Faculty of Education Graduate Students interests within the faculty and the university at large. This work continues in the summer as well. An issue that was identified by the EGSA was insufficient writing support services for graduate students. To remedy this gap in service delivery, a motion was adopted at the GSAED council asking for increased writing support services for graduate students at uOttawa. This motion resulted in the creation of a working group consisting of members of GSAED and administrative personnel, including the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS). The working group has created a proposal for a new comprehensive writing support service available to all graduate students at uOttawa. To get a sense of what kind of support graduate students need, the GSAED Officer of University Affairs, Brenna Quigely, organized a three-day writing retreat in the summer, biweekly writing blocks, and a week-long writing retreat that will take place in October.
