Resources for Students

Software/Coding

All students are able to download needed software from the UW-Madison Software Library, including Stata, MATLAB, and the Microsoft Word Office suite.

UW-Madison also provides free Software Training for Students (STS). This includes the Ask-a-Trainer program, where you can get one-on-one instruction in a number of different programs.

Writing

Purdue Owl has an excellent and transparent APA Formatting and Style Guide.

The UW-Madison Writing Center is available for walk-ins and appointments throughout the year. I strongly recommend scheduling appointments to go over written work, including course term papers, with a writing tutor. You can even set up a writing mentorship with a tutor you meet weekly or biweekly for longer term papers, theses, and research projects.

The Hemingway App provides immediate feedback on writing aimed at improving readability.

Mental Health

If you are struggling, there are many, many local services available to help. I am more than happy to help you identify and contact resources. As an instructor, I am a mandated reporter, but I can put you in touch with confidential services. I've listed contact information for a few local support services below.

University Health Services provides counseling and psychiatric services to students free of charge. They also operate a 24-hour crisis line at 608-265-5600 (option 9).

UHS also provides Survivor Services for student survivor/victims of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. These services can be accessed both at the UW clinic during drop-in hours or via phone at 608-265-5600 (option 3).

There are also many resources around the community, including Solstice House, a local peer-run respite where you can stay if you need mental health/substance abuse support. Solstice House also operates a zoom Warm Line by appointment (call 608-244-5077).

Victims of domestic violence in Madison can also reach out to Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS). DAIS operates a 24/7 emergency shelter, runs support groups, provides legal services, and can assist in safety planning. Their 24-hour crisis line is 608-251-4445.
