The Writing Center helps all in the University community improve their writing, including attitudes and self-confidence about writing.
Our Speaking Center tutors work with students to improve their public speaking skills, gain confidence in joining class discussion, and improve basic conversational language skills.
The Conversation Center hosts one-on-one and small group conversation between international and domestic students to build cultural awareness and casual English skills.
Success in Rhetoric (SIR) (2012 Main Library; phone: 319-353-2747) offers fifty-minute, skills-based, small-group tutoring to any student enrolled in Rhetoric.
