About 70% of our consulting staff is comprised of UT undergraduate students. They may join our consulting staff in two ways:

01: Taking RHE 368C

Following Dr. John Ruszkiewicz’s retirement, RHE 368C: Writing Center Internship will be taught by UWC Assistant Director Alice Batt. If you are interested, please send a writing sample and a brief faculty referral (just a sentence or two) to by October 27.

In October we host an Open House where students can meet UWC staff and ask questions about the class and job. Visit our Events page for details about our next Open House.

02: Applying as a CSC

Course Specialist Consultants (CSC) are dedicated to specific UT writing flag courses. Students in a CSC’s class have scheduling priority, but the CSC also works as a “generalist” and consults with other UT students when available. Visit the CSC page for more information.

We are not hiring new CSCs for spring 2017.

Graduate Students

We encourage qualified applicants from all disciplines to apply; applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. To be considered for a position, please submit a cover letter, CV, and 5-page sample of your expository writing here.

Every spring, we also interview applicants for administrative positions. Positions we sometimes need to fill include:

Assistant Program Coordinator
Digital Communications Coordinator
Presentations Coordinator
Praxis Editor

Check back soon for details about this spring’s application deadlines.

Working as a student employee comes with certain benefits and requirements. The Office of Human Resources and the Graduate School have posted answers to frequently asked questions about insurance eligibility, minimum enrollment requirements, maximum number of semesters a graduate student can work, and other issues pertinent to working as a student. We encourage you to review this information.

Please note: Some graduate student positions may be eligible for full or partial tuition reduction. Talk to your Department about whether you qualify.
