What is asynchronous coaching?
With asynchronous coaching, students submit a draft to the writing center for feedback without a real-time coaching session. The coach reads your work and emails you the feedback within two days.

Who should use asynchronous coaching?
Async appointments are ideal for students stationed aboard ship, in a different time zone, or working full-time. Async appointments also work well for follow-up appointments, when you’ve already met with a coach on a first draft and need a second review.

See your world through different eyes as artists throughout history provide the human context that scholars have a hard time reaching.

In “My Glory Never Dies”: the Military in Literature, Film, and Onstage, a series of five independent workshops offered on Fridays from 1300-1500, beginning Jul 17, Dr. Cheryldee Huddleston (GWC contractor and instructor) will facilitate an entertaining and thought-provoking sampler of stories that have influenced Western culture and even military policy. 

During the exceptional time we are experiencing globally and at NPS, these workshops encourage you to take a break, exercise your imagination, and build community. Join discussions that stem from your own responses, thoughts, and questions.

Faculty and staff are welcome!
