What do Faculty Associates do?

WID’s mission is to support instructors who help make writing a meaningful part of the undergraduate experience.

  • The Catamount Core’s WIL1 designation
  • The Catamount Core’s WIL2 designation
  • Peer learning and/or course-embedded writing support
  • Instruction that is equity-minded, inclusive, and/or supports multilingual writers  
  • Support for diverse faculty
  • Response to needs of the moment, such as Generative Artificial Intelligence (gen AI)
  • Or any other significant area of interest relevant to WID’s mission

What is expected?

  • Meeting to develop a mutually beneficial work plan and periodic check-ins
  • Some activities during the on-contract weeks of August, January, and May
  • 15-30 hours of work total over the academic year
