Daniel Mueller joins UWC staff

The University Writing Center is excited to announce that Daniel Mueller has joined the UWC's full-time staff as a Writing Consultant I. 

Mueller previously worked at the UWC as an undergraduate peer consultant while earning his BA in English with a minor in Film Studies. As a consultant, he tutored in our graduate DATA program and served as an undergraduate team leader.

After graduating in 2018, he worked as a tutor for Huntington Learning Center in Cypress, Texas where he was quickly promoted to managing director. At Huntington, he was responsible for planning the tutoring curriculum for each client and oversaw all of the center’s day-to-day operations, including tutor training.

The UWC welcomes his managerial experience, and his knowledge of the UWC make him an excellent addition to our staff. 

Florence Davies promoted to Assistant Director

We are delighted to announce that Florence Davies has been promoted to the position of Assistant Director of the University Writing Center. Flo has been part of the UWC's full-time staff for 8 years, having previously been a peer writing/speaking consultant while earning her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M. Flo also has a masters degree in creative writing from Stony Brook University. Her creative writing background has been evident in her work at the UWC, where she founded and directed the center's Black Box Writers Residency, a program to develop undergraduate creative writers at Texas A&M. That program was a precursor to another program Flo currently helps manage, the Aggie Creative Collective, which nurtures talented undergraduate writers and visual artists. In her new role, Flo will assist the center's director and executive director, while continuing to develop and lead the center's tutor training and supervising the graduate student team leaders. She will also continue to oversee the UWC's media and marketing efforts. Congratulations, Flo! 

Submit your video for feedback!

Aggies can now submit video projects to the UWC for feedback. 

To submit a video, you'll need to select the Online Video Submission option when you make an appointment. Then, fill out the entry survey, indicating what concerns you have about the project and any other relevant information, such as whether its for a specific class and if you were given any specific instructions. Finally, include a link to the video via YouTube or Google Drive. 

If you're making the appointment before the video itself is done, you can include a link to any short video as a placeholder. Just remember to swap that out for your video before the date and time of your appointment! 

While any kind of video projects are welcome, this option might be especially useful for students who are about to give a presentation and want feedback on their practice session but can't come to the UWC in person. Just record yourself rehearsing the presentation and tell us in the entry survey who your intended audience is. The UWC consultant who reviews your submission will offer feedback on whatever you're concerned about including pacing, delivery, and transitions.

We hope this new type of appointment will encourage more students to use our services for even more kinds of communication projects.  

So, send us your videos, Aggies!
