Schedule Consultation

All CAPC consultations move to online

Summer consultations begin May 18.

In response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the CAPC has transitioned to online consultations. Students can make an appointment on our online scheduler in the same way they have done in the past. Once a session is scheduled, a confirmation email will be sent to students along with instructions to “enter” the zoom session. We strongly recommend that all students download Zoom prior to their scheduled sessions. For any further questions about this, please email us at capc@rice.edu.

  • Consultant Spotlight

    Strong writing reflects strong thinking. As we develop our communication skills, we are at the same time developing our skills of critical thinking, analysis, and reasoning. This is why instead of thinking of our writing in terms of being "good" or "bad," it can be more useful to ask ourselves whether our communication strategies are effective or are working well. Communication is essential to achieving all kinds of goals, academic and otherwise - and we are always in a position to improve our communication capabilities!
