The Student Success Center offers writing and research groups that provide students with ongoing support and feedback. Each group comprises 4-8 graduate students from diverse academic disciplines who meet regularly to share their works in progress. Group members provide each other with feedback and peer support for setting goals, solving problems, and working efficiently and effectively as writer-researchers.

Staff from the SSC provide overall organizational support for the groups, helping them to organize their agendas, identify needs, and access resources.

Writing and research groups are open to Temple University graduate students working on their prospectus/proposal or dissertation/thesis. Students from all colleges and departments are welcome to participate.

How to join a writing and research group:

New groups typically form at the beginning of each semester. To join a Fall 2023 group, please complete the Writing Groups form by Friday, Sept 8. Groups will begin meeting the week of Sept 18. If you miss the deadline, please register anyway. We might be able to accommodate a group that starts later in the semester.
