A new full-time Program Coordinator position is being created in the Office for Diversity in Graduate Education at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. It is an exciting blend of writing program administration, writing consultancy, research on graduate education, and administrative work that is especially related to community engagement.
The “Writing Initiative” part of the work (at 50% of the appointment) particularly serves an established retention program for graduate (mostly doctoral) students of colour. In addition to a demonstrated commitment to working with historically underrepresented communities in higher ed, the person in this position needs to have deep experience in the individual writing consultation as a site of teaching and learning. Thus, while the position is not housed in a writing centre, the consultancy practice is based in WC pedagogies. The full posting can be found here.
