Spring 2023 Writing Support Services FREE mini-courses  

SPH Writing Support Services will offer two FREE mini-courses: Grammar for Academic Writing and Advanced English Grammar and Punctuation for Graduate Students via Cisco WebEx starting the week of March 1, 2023. Each mini-course will meet two (2) hours per week for a total of four (4) weeks.

Grammar for Academic Writing (March 1 – March 29, 2023, Wednesdays, 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)

This course is designed for graduate students who are motivated to improve or enhance their writing skills by practicing English grammar which is essential for successful academic writing. To register for this course, please e-mail Dr. Zhiling "Willa" Wu at  

Advanced English Grammar and Punctuation for Graduate Students (March 2 – March 30, 2023, Thursdays, 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.) 

This course is designed for graduate students who want to improve their academic writing by focusing on grammatical issues and punctuation errors commonly found in graduate writing. Students should have a knowledge of basic English grammar, including the eight parts of speech and their functions in sentences; the verb types, moods, tenses, and voice as well as their uses in scientific writing; and the types of phrases, independent clauses, and dependent clauses as well as their roles in building sentences. To register for this course, please e-mail Dr. Patricia McEvoy-Jamil at 

Note that neither course will be offered during Spring Break week (March 15 and 16). Spaces are limited, so contact the corresponding Writing Support Services team member at your earliest convenience.

COVID-19 Information

At this time, the library is open only to UTHealth SPH students, staff, and faculty, but it is limiting the maximum number of people allowed in its space. Per UTHealth policy and CDC guidelines, masks are highly recommended to enter the RAS Building and the library. Keep in mind that many, if not all, LGCC resources and services can be accessed remotely across our various online guides and teleconferencing software. Let's work together to ensure that we all stay safe and healthy as we continue the Spring 2023 semester!
