Welcome to the Business Communication Lab

The Business Communication Lab helps Walton College students with all their written and oral communication needs. 

Who We Are

Communication is a skill employers consistently rank as one of the most important for new hires to have. Our tutors will show you how to write for a business audience, revise your work, proofread your papers, organize content, polish speeches, and edit presentations.

All Walton graduate and undergraduate students may visit the center individually or as a group - students who are taking a Walton class are also welcome to visit us. We have all the resources you need to become a better writer and speaker!

Our Mission Statement

The Walton Business Communication Lab aids students on campus and members of the community to become better communicators. Our tutors work with graduate and undergraduate students to develop, improve, and revise compositions related to writing and public speaking so that they can use professional communication skills intentionally and effectively. By collaborating with various University of Arkansas on-campus organizations and hosting workshops and lectures, we provide students with an interdisciplinary approach to business communication.

Our Diversity Statement

The Business Communication Lab strives to make business communication resources and expertise accessible to underrespresented groups through campus and community outreach. We are committed to providing services that invite people from all communities, including all ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, abilities, social class, and religions. The Walton Business Communication Lab thereby seeks to cultivate accessibility and inclusivity through our work to develop and support students as they become business communicators. 

Get Help

All Walton graduate and undergraduate students may visit the center individually or as a group – students who are taking a Walton class are also welcome to visit us. We have all the resources you need to become a better writer and speaker!

Happy Monday Hogs! Over the next few weeks, we will be introducing you to our amazing NEW tutors! The office is so happy to have them, and we know you’ll love them too! This is Anna! Anna is from Springfield, Missouri, and is working towards a master's degree in English. She earned her bachelor's in Communication and Journalism, and she enjoys reading adaptations of ancient folklore and mythology. Someday, she hopes to work in museum education or at a nonprofit. In her spare time, she enjoys watercolor painting, buying more books than she has room to store, and watching cooking shows and documentaries. A fun fact is that in undergrad, Anna was the Editor-in-Chief of a student-run travel magazine! #MeetaTutorMonday #NewTutors #BeEpic

What We Do

All of our tutors are eager to help students progress as communicators. Any student, no matter how good of a writer or public speaker he or she might be, will see their communication skills improve after working with one of our peer tutors, graduate tutors, or communication consultants. 

We also collaborate with professors and teaching assistants to help them develop presentation or writing assignments, handouts for particular assignments, as well as conduct in-class or outside-of-class tutorials and workshops. 

Here are just a few of the services we provide:

  • Focused attention on your strengths and weaknesses as a communicator
  • Immediate feedback on writing and public speaking assignments
  • Outside-of-class tutorials and workshops
  • Tailor-made handouts and presentations for your classroom
