Academic Resources

Writing Assistance:

For additional help on your writing, consult the expert staff of The Writing Center in Olin Library (first floor). It can be enormously helpful to ask someone outside a course to read your essays and to provide feedback on strength of argument, clarity, organization, etc.

Disability Resources:

Washington University is committed to providing accommodations and/or services to students with documented disabilities. Washington University’s Cornerstone:  Center for Advanced Learning Disability Resources is the University’s official resource for students with disabilities and students with suspected disabilities. DR assists students with disabilities by providing guidance and accommodations to ensure equal access to our campus, both physically and academically. To learn more about its services, initiate the process of formal documentation and/or to arrange for accommodations, please contact Disability Resources at the start of the course.

Mental Health:

Mental Health Services’ professional staff members work with students to resolve personal and interpersonal difficulties, many of which can affect the academic experience. These include conflicts with or worry about friends or family, concerns about eating or drinking patterns, and feelings of anxiety and depression.  See:
