In my administrative and teacher development work I seek to cultivate open, equitable, and collaborative environments where community members are empowered to develop and express their individual and collective capacities as learners, teachers, and historical change agents.

As Assistant Director of the Center for Writing Studies, in collaboration with the Director and my co-AD, I

  • planned, advertised, executed, and archived a range of events from brownbag lunches with affiliated faculty and grad students to multi-day symposia with visiting scholars;
  • led Writing Across the Curriculum workshops for graduate students and faculty;
  • managed websites, listservs, and social media accounts;
  • facilitated ongoing faculty development for teachers of Writing Across Media (INFO/WRIT 303);
  • supported the smooth operation of grad student-organized affinity groups;
  • helped train incoming ADs and revised/organized administrative documents for posterity;
  • and much more…

One of my most cherished project was our day-long symposium on social justice education, which spurred conversation and resource sharing by featuring activity-based keynotes with two invited scholars as well as panels and tabling by groups practicing social justice education in various realms of our local community. Check out the flyer I designed for it:
