Undergraduate Writing Program, Columbia University in the City of New York
Associate Director and Director of the Writing Center
Columbiaâ€™s Undergraduate Writing Program is a four-year-old program responsible for offering the university's required first-year writing course and for operating the university's writing center. We seek to hire an associate director interested in working with a small team of writing program administrators (the director and one other associate director) to expand and administer this program.
This associate director's primary responsibility will be to direct and develop our nascent writing center. Additional duties will include teaching the university's required first-year writing course, participating in the selection and training of graduate-student instructors, and contributing to the general administration of the UWP. Experience with curriculum development, non-native speakers/writers of English, writing-in-the-disciplines, or writing and technology is also desirable.
