Student Assistants

Student Assistants are a part of the Writing and Multiliteracy Center to ensure that students utilizing our services are welcomed and assisted prior to their visit with a writing consultant. Beyond assisting students, they provide administrative support to ensure that the center is running properly.

Information on how to become a student assistant will be made available on this page, and on the Dolphin Careerlink, when an opening arises.
