Consultation in progress

We support students, faculty and staff and enjoy working with international and multilingual students. At our main site, 209 Baldy, our peer consulting service can help with any type of writing: essays, reports, dissertations, articles, personal statements, emails…anything! If you compose it, we will work with you on it. We also support UB by doing workshops, presentations and hosting special programs. We hold writing retreats and can help your department with writing support initiatives such as special workshops, writing groups, or in-house retreats.

Austin Nagelhout

"As a consultant at the CEW, I regularly meet incredible students with interesting and diverse backgrounds. I focus on beginning each consultation by getting to know the writer, their background, their goals and their perspectives. I believe that this communication empowers the writer and often connects them to and allows them to take ownership of their research. My role guiding students in their individual writing journeys is one of my favorite parts of working at the CEW. Creating enduring relationships with students from diverse backgrounds and various stages of writing has been incredibly rewarding. Working at the CEW has been a major highlight of my graduate study at UB."

Meet our newest featured writer, Meejas Shrestha!
Meejas has come to the CEW to work on many different kinds of projects, from papers and theses to personal statements and applications. He feels the CEW consultants have helped him “build up understanding” in his writing in addition to helping on grammar and improving his English skills overall. Meejas believes that the help he received from Patricia and Matt and their advice to frame his personal statement as a story contributed to his acceptance to graduate school.

David Strittmatter

Meet David Strittmatter, the latest Write Through scholar. While Strittmatter's story models speedy dissertating, he accentuates the importance of self-care and focuses primarily on task, rather than time, management. “What tasks require more brain power than others? Do those during your peak productivity hours,” he advises, "All of it needs to be done." Strittmatter reminds that you don't have to wait till everything is done to start writing. Writing is a process. "Allow yourself to figure it out along the way."
