Technological tools have long afforded writing centers abilities that they would not have as solely brick-and-mortar institutions. Nevertheless, the interdependence of technology and writing center support expanded exponentially when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. At the Center for Communication Excellence (CCE) in Iowa State University’s (ISU’s) Graduate College, staff and communication consultants responded accordingly with technological innovations. These state-of-the-art approaches not only supported the academic communication needs of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars but also contributed to the distribution of agency among students/postdocs, writing center professionals, and the targeted use of technology.
