Resources at Wesleyan

Student Academic Resources

Quantitative Analysis Center Tutor

The Quantitative Analysis Center (QAC) is a collaborative effort of academic and administrative departments. It coordinates support for quantitative analysis across the curriculum, and provides an institutional framework for collaboration across departments and disciplines in the area of data analysis. Learn about and explore our core initiatives below.

Writing Workshop 

The Writing Workshop in the Shapiro Center for Writing supports Wesleyan students in all aspects of their academic writing. We train and mentor undergraduates who work to support their peers in writing across campus. Our writing tutors strive to meet writers where they are in the writing process. That may mean brainstorming a new assignment, reviewing the structure of a draft, tinkering with the details of an essay before it is submitted to an instructor, or mastering important skills. We work to support students with particular writing tasks while also cultivating spaces on campus for students to develop their voice, perspective, and values as writers.
