If you do not have a FWS/ASSP award and are still interested in employment with the WCC, you may fill out the application below.
As a peer consultant in the Writing and Communication Center, your main responsibility is to talk to fellow students about their words and ideas. You are not an editor or a proofreader; instead you are a guide, a coach, a sounding board and, at times, a teacher.
In addition to working with students, Writing and Communication Center peer consultants are expected to regularly attend staff meetings, create and design tutoring materials, deliver writing workshops, and engage in action research as members of the WCC community of practice.
