Global Communication Center - Carnegie Mellon University

Communication Tutoring at the GCC

The Global Communication Center (GCC) is a new tutoring resource supporting our students' efforts to improve their written, oral, and visual communication skills.  We support any student, at any level, in any discipline, at any stage of the composing process.

We offer CMU students free one-on-one tutoring for academic communication projects in our location on the first floor of the Hunt Library.  Our tutors are specifically trained in communication theory, research, and instruction. You can meet with a tutor by making an appointment or by walking in to the Hunt library.  We recommend you bring electronic copies of your instructor's assignment prompt and any materials you have prepared.

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.
