Group Work Lab

Group projects are a central feature of many classes at the University of Portland and the group work assistants (GWAs) are here to help guide your group to success. By utilizing the Group Work Lab and our peer assistants, you can learn essential strategies and skills of successful teamwork that will help make you an asset to any group project at UP and beyond.

Our goals are to help you:

  1. Systematically think through the group's social, task, and procedural needs;
  2. Negotiate group workloads and expectations as they align with the instructor's desire;
  3. Mediate constructive conflict to aid in the strengthening of their project/paper.


Student groups are highly encouraged to meet with a group project assistant before beginning their project in order to discuss grade expectations, ground rules, and strategies for equitably dividing tasks.

Set an appointment today! Appointments last about 30 minutes. Please bring a copy of your syllabus and/or assignment instructions.

We look forward to working with you!

Connect. Learn. Succeed.
