About Our Writing Lab Coordinators

Writing Lab Coordinators organize many of the activities and service areas of the Writing Lab. The following is a list of all coordinator positions.

Assistant Directors and Coordinators

Graduate and undergraduate tutors have the opportunity to serve in a variety of administrative positions, which provide valuable professional development and experience. Current tutors in these positions are as follows:

  • AD for Undergraduate Education: Elizabeth Geib
  • AD for Workshops and WAC: Eugie Ruiz
  • AD for Multilingual Writing: Mitch Hobza   
Assistant Director for Undergraduate Education

The AD for Undergraduate education teaches a section of ENGL 390, a for-credit training course for prospective undergraduate tutors.  The position works closely with Tammy in mentoring and training current tutors and keeping communication open between the different tutoring staffs. The AD for Undergraduate Education a negotiable amount of release time for teaching and other administrative responsibilities.

Assistant Director for Workshops and Writing Across the Curriculum

The AD for Workshops/WAC receives a negotiated amount of release time from tutoring to oversee in-Lab and in-class workshops.  This includes establishing a semester schedule of in-Lab workshops, communicating with instructors about workshop requests, filling workshop requests, and maintaining records and information about workshops. A good portion of this position requires the AD to communicate with faculty and with the Writing Lab Directors, since many workshop requests may not result in an actual workshop. Some requests may evolve into other WAC programs.

Assistant Director for Multilingual Writing

The AD for Multilingual Writing works on special projects related to multilingual writing meant to support those who work with multilingual writers.  The position varies from year to year, depending on the interests and skills of the graduate student who occupies the position.  The position may be either .25 FTE or .50 FTE.  It does not usually involve any tutoring hours.
