The Kogod Center for Business Communications works with the entire Kogod School of Business community to help develop better writers, more effective speakers, and stronger critical thinkers.

Our peer tutors are trained to welcome, mentor, and guide you to become dynamic communicators. We encourage you to make an appointment no matter where you are in the writing process.
