Center for Writing to hire peer consultants St. Thomas Newsroom March 9, 2010 Applications are available for undergraduate students to become peer consultants in the Center for Writing starting in 2010-11. Completed applications, including a writing sample, are due by Friday, March 19. “If you enjoy writing and helping others with theirs, and if you are interested in a future having to do with writing or working with others, consider working in the UST Center for Writing,” remarked Dr. Susan Callaway, director of the center. “As a peer consultant you will work one-on-one with your peers from across the disciplines. You’ll gain strong interpersonal skills and improve your own writing and reading in a challenging intellectual environment. And you can consult until you graduate.” After they are hired, peer consultants need to complete a required course during fall semester; the course has a service-learning component. To apply for a peer consultant position, pick up an application at the Center for Writing, Room 361, John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts, during its open hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon Friday. In O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center: 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday. “Consider being consulted before you apply. See how we work,” Callaway added.
