A picture of one of our wonderful faculty members!

This year seven long-time faculty members are retiring from the University Writing Program. Altogether, these seven people represent more than 175 YEARS of teaching. A conservative accounting suggests that, collectively, they have taught more than 25,000 students. Before there was a University Writing Program, these people developed the composition curriculum, administered the program, trained graduate students, and created numerous on-going features of what is now a thriving, independent writing program: Writing Across the Curriculum, Computers in Composition, the Professional Writing Minor, Writing Ambassadors, Prized Writing, Writing on the Edge – and many more achievements. Without these seven people, the University Writing Program, as we know it today, would not exist. We owe them all an enormous debt of gratitude. Certainly, they will all be missed.
