Baruch Services

Writing Center

The Writing Center offers free, one-to-one online writing support to all Baruch students. The Center’s consultants work collaboratively with you to deepen your writing and English language skills. At any step in the process, they’ll help you become a more confident and versatile writer. I encourage you to schedule your appointment well in advance of when your writing is due. You can schedule an appointment at: Log on to their website,, to learn more.

Bonus: Anytime you have an appointment with the writing center to help with an essay for my class, I will automatically raise your grade a step (a B- becomes a B, a B+ becomes an A-).


The library at Baruch is pretty fantastic. Although we cannot spend time there in person right now, their librarians are still available online to assist you with research, and there are a huge number of ebooks and digital articles available to you. Here is their website.

Research Consultations: Students can learn how to focus on a research topic; plan a research strategy, and identify relevant sources of information in a one-on-one research consultation with a librarian. Sessions can run from 30 to 60 minutes long and will be offered in Zoom. Students or student teams should schedule a meeting by completing this form.

Bonus: If you have a research consultation with a librarian before our final essay is due, I will raise your grade on that essay by a step (B+ becomes A-, for instance).

Counseling Services

College life can be extremely challenging (as can adult life in general). Most adults I know in New York City go to therapy—it’s nothing to be ashamed of and most people find it very helpful. I urge anyone who is struggling with any aspect of life, from friends to school work to family to general mental unrest to take advantage of the free online counseling services offered at Baruch for all students. You can make an appointment here.
