Every year, the CSWIM has a staff of about 30 Writing, Speaking, and Image Partners. Partner nominations are solicited from faculty and staff across the College, and self-applications are encouraged. New Partners take the full- or half-credit section of English 87 – which examines writing theories, processes, and pedagogies – during their first semester working at the CSWIM. All Partners participate in ongoing training through biweekly lunch meetings and occasional evening workshops. Partners work approximately 5 hours per week in the CSWIM, and many work attached to ID1 courses in the fall and courses across the disciplines in the spring.
If you are interested in becoming a Writing, Speaking or Image Partner and are currently a first-year or a sophomore, please email the CSWIM to let us know you are interested.
