Work for us

The Writing Center hires graduate and undergraduate consultants from all disciplines.

To work for us, you must be interested in more than correcting and editing student papers. While strong writing skills are certainly required, strong people skills are equally important. Working one-on-one with writers requires commitment at multiple levels — intellectual, emotional and social. An invested and caring consultant is key to student success.

Qualifications

Writing Process and Practice (ENGL 367)

Undergraduates interested in working at the Writing Center must first complete Writing Process and Practice (ENGL 367). The course is offered during the fall and spring semesters.

ENGL 367 explores writing theory and practice and prepares students to become consultants in the Writing Center. The latter part of the course requires 15 hours of observation and participation in Writing Center work.
