Employment

The IUPUI University Writing Center employs faculty members and specially trained students as consultants. Faculty consultants have at least one year’s experience teaching in the IUPUI Writing Program or in the EAP Program. Contact Vicki Hale (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) with questions about teaching composition at IUPUI.

Every year, IUPUI undergraduate students accepted into the Writing Fellows program enroll in ENG-W496, the Consultant Training Seminar. Over the course of the semester, fledgling consultants interact with UWC staff, learn the day-to-day operations of the UWC, and begin working with students. Each student who successfully earns a grade of "A" in ENG-W496, and who completes his or her in-house training, may then become a paid UWC employee at the beginning of the following spring semester.

This year, the UWC is actively recruiting graduate students as well. Graduate students in the IUPUI English Department may be eligible for a brief training program and consulting position in the UWC. For more information about the Graduate Consulting Program, see the Information Sheet and Application below.
