Graduate Research & Writing Consultations

Graduate Research & Writing Consultations will be available the first and third Friday afternoons of each month in Room 2439 of the James C. Kirkpatrick Library.  Professor and Librarian, Cheryl Riley will be available at these times to help you.  You can schedule an appointment or just drop-in.  If you have a specific research and/or writing assignment please check with Cheryl ahead of time; she may ask you to send her your work so she can review it before you meet with her.  Contact Cheryl via email: criley@ucmo.edu  If the first and third Friday does not work for you, additional time may be available Monday through Thursday at UCM-Lee’s Summit—just contact Cheryl via email to check on available times.
