Written, oral and visual communication at the GCC
The Global Communication Center (GCC) prepares CMU students to communicate in an interconnected world by providing free one-on-one tutoring, workshops, and classroom support. Below are some of the ways we support students and faculty:
Undergraduates: course papers, lab reports, PowerPoint presentations, oral communication, scientific posters, senior theses, team projects, job and graduate school applications
Graduate students: dissertations, grant proposals, technical papers, journal articles, conference presentations, research posters, data visualization, application materials (including personal statements and cover letters), written and oral exams
Faculty: advice on assignment design, class and department-specific workshops, assistance with academic publication and presentations
We work with all students at all levels, whether English is your native language or your second or third tongue.
You can make an appointment online or walk in to our location on the first floor of the Hunt library. Our Spring hours are:

Who Can Use the Global Communication Center
We serve all Carnegie Mellon University students, including undergraduates, graduate students, and doctoral candidates. Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff may also attend workshops and receive communication tutoring if space is available. CMU Alumni may also receive communication tutoring as well, if space is available. To ensure that students have priority, we ask faculty, staff and alumni to limit themselves to same-day tutoring appointments.
