Mli:i\i01Ui\G PROGRAM 


This year, the Writing Center is lucky to have 
fourteen Northeastern University students and 
two graduate students working on campus. The 
fourteen undergrads, Senior English majors in 
Professor Neil Lerner's class, are completing a 
practicum at RCC. The graduate students are 
volunteering their time and professional 
expertise to support the center in many ways. 

The students are working closely with Prof. Judy 
Kahalas, Writing Center Coordinator, and Prof. 
Quentin James, Evening Associate and Summer 
Coordinator, to develop additional workshops 
for students. They are also engaged in tutoring 
and classroom support.
