Applications are available for undergraduate students to become peer consultants in the Center for Writing starting in fall 2011.
Peer consultants work one-to-one with peers from across the disciplines, gain strong interpersonal skills and improve in the areas of writing and reading in a challenging intellectual environment. Students of any major can be a consultant until they graduate.
A required course will need to be completed in the fall semester after a peer consultant is hired, which can count toward an English minor or as an elective. Students will consult while taking this course, which also provides a service-learning component.
Completed applications are due Friday, March 18.
"It's important to start the application process now so that students can find out more about what a peer consultant does, how many hours they typically work in a week, and what the course is like," remarked Dr. Susan Callaway, the center’s director.
