How can I get a job working at GUTS?

At the end of each semester, GUTS is usually looking for new staff members. Check the UW Job Center and the GUTS website for job announcements. The staff positions are the only paid positions at GUTS. All of our tutors are volunteers.

Does GUTS offer tutoring for writing?

UW-Madison has an excellent resource in the Writing Center, so GUTS does not supply assistance in writing. Please contact the Writing Center for individual appointments and workshops in writing:
