About the Hanson Center for Communication

The Hanson Center for Communication (HCC) is an endowed program that works closely with engineering faculty to train students in verbal and written communication throughout the curriculum. The center helps create, manage, and grade writing and presentation assignments, as well as provide training to students, tutors, and faculty on best practices for communication. In addition, the Hanson Center for Communication is home to an innovative peer-training center that conducts hundreds of one-on-one and team tutoring sessions each year. The center helps review lab reports, topical papers, technical essays, and technical presentations each semester. Peer tutors are undergraduate students who have shown exceptional promise as communicators and provide individualized feedback throughout the writing and presentation process. In addressing global concerns (organization, clarity, and context), peer tutors help their fellow students transform rough drafts into persuasive, logical documents and presentations.

The Hanson Center is now open for tutoring appointments.
