Writing Studies Affiliation
By broadest definition, I am a writing studies specialist because I believe:
1. that writing is the most powerful tool in human society;
2. that writing, as such a deeply embedded cultural activity, deserves a great
deal of additional research across both disciplinary and workplace settings.
But most applicably, I believe that universities must:
3. remain vigilant to meet their responsibilities to make all students creative and
adaptable writers to aid in their personal and critical thinking, but also in their
goal to become successful professionals and more effective participants in
In simple terms, I am dedicated to teaching and doing research that supports these beliefs.
