Do You Want to Become a Consultant?
The writing and speaking consultants in the Learning Commons are peer educators. The consultants work with writers and speakers on specific assignments as well as general writing and speaking concerns, and thus develop hands-on teaching experience. Most importantly, consultants help empower others to discover their greatest potential as communicators.
