Graduate Student Support

Learning & Writing Graduate Liaisons provide one-to-one or small group peer-to-peer support to students in any Elon graduate program. Graduate Liaisons support graduate students by facilitating:

  • Skill Share Workshops on topics such as navigating graduate student life, academic preparation strategies, professional and academic writing, etc.
  • Co-Work and Coffee Sessions which are informal sessions that offer an opportunity to gather with other graduate students, work independently or in teams, and socialize at a local coffee shop.
  • Individual Consultations which can be scheduled by directly reaching out via email.

Learning & Writing Graduate Liaisons are current graduate students that are trained and supported by Learning Assistance and The Writing Center within the Center for Writing Excellence. Graduate students can also utilize The Writing Center by making an appointment with a trained undergraduate student; more info here.

For additional questions, you can contact or schedule a consultation with a Learning Assistance staff member.

Hi! My name is Hannah, and I’m a first-year student in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. I’m excited to be in this role as a Graduate Liaison because as a first-generation graduate student, I recognize the significance of support. I have previously worked in a writing center at my undergrad, and this gave me insight on the benefit of peer relationships centered around collaboration. In this position, I look forward to hearing the needs of my peers, forging relationships, and, most importantly, encouraging and offering support!

I am a second-year graduate student in the Master of Arts in Higher Education program. I am excited to be a Graduate Liaison because I want to help build graduate student community on Elon’s campus so that we can all be a little less sad together. I’m also passionate about helping give other grad students the tools to not be consumed by grad school so that we can enjoy having a life outside of school. It can be an overwhelming and all-encompassing transition and I hope to help make it less so. When I’m not in class, I can be found at my apprenticeship in the Gender and LGBTQIA Center, hosting or serving at The Root, or at home cuddling with my cat and attempting to do homework.
