Meet the Writing Program Faculty

The Writing Program Faculty is a vibrant group of scholar-teachers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. They hold doctorates in Humanities, Social Science, and STEM fields, and they have been trained in diverse research methods and scholarly approaches. Our faculty use their research backgrounds and continuing pedagogical development activities to challenge and support the undergraduate students at CWRU. It's a powerful formula for success: every year, many of our colleagues are nominated for university-wide teaching and mentoring awards.
