Welcome to the Academic Communication Program
The Academic Communication Program of the Graduate College fosters excellence in the communication skills of developing scholars, enhancing the graduate and research missions of Iowa State University.
The program coordinates and implements opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral associates to master the necessary communication skills as they move toward the attainment of their academic and career goals. Our commitment to improving the sustainability and comprehensiveness of effective academic communication support is realized through identifying immediate needs and addressing them by offering new specialized services informed by scholarship of teaching, learning, and assessment of academic writing and speaking. We also strive to introduce cutting-edge technologies to enhance our services.
A significant part of the program's formal assessment and instruction activities is to prepare international graduate students with teaching appointments for successful performance in a variety of instructional roles at Iowa State University.
The program offers appointments for free one-on-one consultations with trained graduate student writing consultants. Currently, discipline-specific writing consultations are available for students in Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering, Food Science & Human Nutrition, Human Development & Family Studies. Students in other disciplines can make appointments for research writing consulting and English writing consulting.
