E-Mail Etiquette at the University

ESL Workshops

Adrienne Lynett, UCLA Program Manager
A graduate student will write hundreds of emails while getting his or her degree—emails that invite professors to serve on thesis/dissertation committees, emails that ask for extensions on papers, emails in which graduate students introduce themselves to potential mentors or advisors. Designed for graduate students who speak English as a second or foreign language, but open to everyone, this workshop breaks down the language necessary to make polite requests over email. (Approx. 20 mins.) This workshop was recorded in 2020.
