Duke has many exceptional resources to support you inside and outside the classroom.

The Writing Studio

Duke’s Writing Studio is an excellent resource for obtaining assistance with and responses to your work as a writer. The consultants at the Writing Studio are trained professionals, and they offer one-on-one help with any phase of any writing project you do as a Duke student. Whether you are drafting, revising, or editing, use the online appointment form to book a session with a consultant in advance. When you arrive at your conference, bring the essay or project you are working on with you, as well as a copy of the assignment you are responding to. 

Student Disability Access Office

Students who may need special accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact the Student Disability Access Office as soon as possible to ensure that such accommodations can be implemented in a timely fashion.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

Each of you will face some level of challenge during your time at Duke – whether an ‘everyday’ challenge like procrastination, or a more profound challenge that impairs your ability to function. The CAPS staff includes psychologists, clinical social workers, and psychiatrists experienced in working with college-age adults.

The Academic Resource Center

The ARC provides academic support and programming for all Duke undergraduates. Their services include one-on-one consultations and peer tutoring, and they work alongside the Student Disability Access Office to serve students with diagnosed learning disabilities. Their programs include opportunities for students to study together in structured groups (“learning communities”), as well as workshops offered throughout. If you feel overwhelmed by your work, or need tips and strategies for working more efficiently, the ARC is the place to go.
