Submitted by Caterina Rost on July 28, 2015 - 10:36am

The Political Science/Law, Societies & Justice/Jackson School of International Studies/Comparative History of Ideas Writing Center provides writing support this summer! 

The POLS/LSJ/JSIS/CHID Writing Center is located in Gowen 111 (to the left of the main Political Science office). We are open two days a week during Summer Quarter, and our hours are:

Tuesdays 10:00am-1:00pm and 1:30-4:30pm

Wednesdays 10:00am-1:00pm and 1:30-4:30pm

Any student taking a course listed or cross-listed in Political Science (POLS), Law Societies & Justice (LSJ), the Jackson School of International Studies (JSIS), or the Comparative History of Ideas (CHID) or in any of those majors is welcome to utilize our center. Our goal at the Writing Center is to help you not only with the assignment in front of you but also to develop your writing skills more generally. We work with students at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming about a prompt or assignment to discussing problem spots in a working draft to a final draft that just needs a second set of eyes. We can also provide feedback to students who are working on admissions letters to graduate school, cover letters, resumes, or application letters of any type.

We encourage students to make appointments to ensure enough time with the tutors. You may make an appointment now by going to our website, Scheduling in advance ensures that you have a full 45 minutes, during which the tutor will focus solely on your work. We also welcome drop-ins!

In racks outside the Center, we have hard copy resources on writing, and all of them can also be found on our website. These short handouts cover diverse topics such as paper organization, constructing a sound thesis statement, final draft checklist, citing print sources, and punctuation. Digital copies of these handouts are available on our website at:

Please come see us! We look forward to working with you this summer.
