Celebration of Student Writing
The Academic Center for Tutoring coordinates the Celebration of Student Writing, an event that has occurred each April since 2008. At the event students share what they have learned about their writing process and products developed in innovative Faculty Writing Fellows' classes. The form of the event is similar to poster sessions of regional and national disciplinary conferences.
This year's Celebration of Student Writing is scheduled for
Thursday, April 19, 2018, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., Schwob Memorial Library in "The Forum" (room 132, first floor), usually during the Academic Week of Excellence/Tower Day.
The program includes a few introductory words by the Provost, whose office the Faculty Writing Fellowship and the Celebration of Student Writing. Following the Provost, the
Academic Center for Tutoring Director will introduce the Faculty Writing Fellows, the winners of the Outstanding Teacher of Writing Award, and the winners of the First-Year Composition Essay Award. While talking to students and exploring the work they've produced, participants at the event can enjoy beverages and light snacks.
We look forward to seeing you there!
