UWC Staff and Personnel

The Writing Center is staffed by a full-time director, a full-time learning specialist, a full-time administrative assistant, approximately nineteen student tutors (direct wage and work study) from various academic disciplines, and students from the university work study program who provide reception work and facilitate data entry. Tutors are recruited from departments across the university. Some are English majors while others represent a variety of majors; all are qualified graduate and undergraduates. All receive training in how to work with writers and how to respond to diverse writing assignments. To qualify for a tutor position, students must have a strong GPA and good grades in their writing courses. Tutors are required to attend weekly tutor-training workshops to fulfill CRLA certification requirements.
