Student Resources

History Writing Center - The UW History Writing Center offers 30 minute individual appointments with the writing center director, an experienced instructor in the History Department. We invite students to use the Writing Center at any stage in the composition process, from brainstorming topics through multiple drafts of an essay.  We encourage you to come to the writing center early in the process of working on your assignment.  Students will actively engage in writing during the consultation.

Libraries - Begin your exploration of the UW Libraries' history resources with the History research guide -- a wide-ranging site with links to databases, e-journals and websites for historical research. You can also follow the History librarian on Facebook for the latest news and information. Contact Theresa Mudrock, the History Librarian for research advice.

Computing - The Department of History maintains a computer lab for its graduate students and undergraduate majors. The Department also maintains 6 laptops, 2 digital projectors, a digital SLR camera, a digital camcorder, and professional sound and light equipment for student use. Access to the labs and portable equipment is restricted to current History graduate students and declared undergraduate History majors. Logon credentials for the lab can be obainted by contacting the Undergraduate Advising Office or the History Graduate Office. To inquire about the portable equipment, please contact the Senior Computer Specialist. All equipment and software is funded through the Student Technology Fee.

History Department Diversity Committee - The goal of the History Department’s Diversity Committee, is to create an ongoing conversation about creating and maintaining an environment of inclusivity in all of our classrooms, and making inclusion a central aspect of our wider departmental culture. This Committee is made up of two graduate students, two undergraduates, two faculty, and one staff member who serve for a full academic year. During the year faculty and graduate students on this committee hold department events on themes such as best practices for graduate and undergraduate mentoring and pedagogies that foster classroom inclusivity. The Committee also serves as a sounding board and resource for students, staff, and faculty who have concerns related to climate and diversity. Any member of the department's learning community may contact one or more members of the Committee with concerns at any time during the year. Inquiries will remain confidential.
