Faculty Nominations for Undergraduate Writing Consultants

At the beginning of each spring semester the Writing Studio solicits nominations from faculty for students to work as undergraduate writing consultants. Your nominations are essential to helping us connect with the best possible future consultants.

Good candidates for the position are thoughtful academic writers who produce strong essays and have the ability to engage in constructive dialogue about writing with their peers. Candidates should also be intellectually curious and professional.

While some successful candidates only apply after being nominated, each year we receive strong applications from interested students who solicit nominations from their instructors. Thank you for nominating qualified students including those who approach you about doing so.

Deadline for Nominations: Friday, February 7, 2014
