Composition Culture

As director of Emmanuel College’s Composition Culture program, I directed the school’s SACS QEP from 2009-2012, securing approval without further monitoring upon first submission and passing SACS’s five-year review process.  As the program continues, I train new faculty at Emmanuel College in the principles and practices of Writing in the Disciplines and provide sessions exploring educational-philosophy questions.
