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 Undergraduate Writing Consultant positions are thoughtful academic writers who also possess strong verbal communication skills and interpersonal abilities, including the ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds and the ability to engage in constructive dialogue about writing. They should also be flexible, patient, professional, and intellectually curious.

At the Writing Studio, we look for consultants from all majors who have excellent communication and collaboration skills and are highly motivated and eager to learn. We also welcome and encourage applicants who are multilingual or who have experience supporting language learning.

Thank you for nominating qualified students including those who approach you about doing so. As of Spring 2019, instructor nominations are no longer a required element of the undergraduate writing consultant application, but they remain an essential means by which potential applicants can learn about the opportunity to work at the Writing Studio.

Deadline for Nominations: Friday, January 24, 2020
