Consultants work with students on a wide range of writing skills including: thesis sentences, content, organization, and citations. Writing Consultants strive to empower confident, independent writers, who edit their own work.
Accommodation for Students with Disabilities
The Student Accommodations Office is located in Luther Library. The Student Accommodations Specialist works directly with students who have a documented disability and are seeking accommodations. Midland University complies with state and federal legislation addressing student accommodations and is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
