Browse the information below to learn more about each Knowledge Market Service. 

We look forward to working with you!

The Knowledge Market has highly-trained fellow students who can help you improve your skills. Our Consultants work one-on-one or in small groups to help develop your research strategies, writing skills, or polish your presentations.

Writing Consultants work alongside the Speech Consultants and Research Consultants in order to best assist students in their interdisciplinary work. These collaborative sessions work similarly to the traditional one-to-one writing consultation; however, through having a writing consultation in the Knowledge Market, you have the ability to include Research and Speech Consultants into your writing session for help with any questions or figuring out the next steps for your project.
