Academic Advising

Few experiences in your academic career have as much potential for influencing your collegiate experience as academic advising. Much more than getting your selected courses, developing a professional relationship with your academic advisor will help you make informed choices and decisions about your education and career.

The Multiliteracy Centers

The Multiliteracy Centers, comprised of the University Writing Center (link: https://writingcenter.uncg.edu) and the University Speaking Center (link: https://speakingcenter.uncg.edu), support thousands of students, faculty, and staff in their awareness of how multiple literacies (written, oral, spatial, visual, gestural, and multi-modal) impact ways of learning, communicating, and composing. This is accomplished by providing communication support through one-on-one and group sessions that focus on dialogic feedback and through customized classroom workshops that address specific learning objectives.
