Judith R. Frank Business Communications Center

Why Business Communication Matters

In the world of business, you need to be able to communicate well—both on paper and in person. The Judith R. Frank Business Communications Center works with Tippie students to ensure that they graduate with the communication skills they need to become industry leaders. It's just one of the ways that our innovative programming has an impact on our graduates.

Our trained staff of graduates and peers serves hundreds of students each semester. Our tutors are trained to handle both general business writing and specific assignments, and mentor each student individually, using course work as guidelines for critique and review. We work closely with professors and teaching assistants in the writing-intensive courses, develop handouts based on particular assignments, and give targeted presentations to classes.


Tippie undergraduate students are encouraged to submit an essay to the Prappas Ethics Essay Contest. The deadline is May 5. Follow the link for more information.

The Frank Center is accepting applications for undergraduate peer tutors for the 2014-15 academic year. The deadline for applications is April 21. For more information, contact Frank Center Interim Assistant Director Jill Griffee Ross at

The Frank Communications Center can help business students with writing and speaking assignments.

The Speaking Center is a good venue for teams to meet and plan a project.
