As an administrator of a writing program, my objectives are to provide structure of practice, support the professional development of those who work with me, and maintain research that evaluates the effectiveness of my program in action. In the four years I have served as Co-Associate Director of the GSU Writing Studio, I’ve worked with scores of tutors and staff, partnered with external departments and programs, and maintained relationships with dozens of faculty and staff to make the writing community of the Studio possible.
