Interested in working at the University Writing Center? We are now accepting applications for undergraduate and graduate writing consultants for Fall 2015. Please go to the How to Become a Tutor page for more information about the requirements and the application process. As the Writing Center provides support to students from first-year to graduate from across the disciplines, we’re especially eager to recruit students from diverse majors and language backgrounds. For students in a STEM major, the UWC also invites applications for a tuition award to cover the cost of the required tutor-education course, ENC 4275: Theory & Practice of Tutoring Writing, as well as the cost of textbooks for this course. The application for the Atkins Endowed Award for STEM University Writing Center Tutor Education is provided here, and is due by May 22, 2015.
