UW Faculty Members Selected for Academic Writing Fellows Program

October 4, 2021

Ten University of Wyoming faculty members have been selected for the UW Academic Writing Fellows (UWAWF) program.

Now in its second year, the cross-disciplinary program promotes greater scholarly productivity through mentoring, retreats, writing groups and community-building.

“I am excited to have another diverse group of participants this year,” says Rick Fisher, co-coordinator of the program. “It’s great to have faculty from five of UW’s seven colleges and a number of new faculty. This mix of experience should provide valuable opportunities for the fellows to learn from one another and gain new perspectives about effective academic writing.”

Fisher coordinates the program with April French, a senior academic adviser in the College of Health Sciences who took part in the program last year.

The Communication across the Curriculum (CxC) program coordinates the UWAWF program, with support from the Office of Academic Affairs. The CxC program supports UW faculty and students in enhancing written, oral and digital communication. It also provides support for faculty to teach writing and seeks to promote a culture of academic communication across campus.

Faculty members selected for the 2021-22 UWAWF program are:

-- Ahmed Abdelaty, an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management.

-- Tracy Eckersley, a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Visual and Literary Arts.

-- Kristi Hansen, an associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.

-- Katelyn Kotlarek, an assistant professor in the Division of Communication Disorders.

-- Meredith Minear, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology.

-- Josh Montgomery, an assistant lecturer in the School of Teacher Education.

-- Melissa Morris, an assistant professor in the Department of History.

-- Grace Shearrer, an assistant professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences.

-- Anne Stevens, a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychology.

-- Sukyung Yoon, an assistant professor in the Division of Social Work.
