Fellows Programs

As part of its efforts to support the teaching of writing and multimodal communication, the UD Writing Center trains undergraduate writing fellows and oral communication fellows to assist full-time faculty members with the instruction of writing in both fall and spring courses throughout the University curriculum.

Fellows attend class meetings; meet with students individually or in small groups to discuss their drafts; facilitate peer response and discussions; and offer feedback to the professor on writing or speaking assignments and students’ progress. Working with a writing or oral communication fellow is a bit like working with an undergraduate teaching assistant, except that fellows are not responsible for grading.

Please check out the Fellows Program Handbook to read more about what fellows can do and what a commitment to a fellow would mean for you. 

If you are interested in applying for a writing fellow, check this page for the application form — posted in November for spring classes and in April for fall classes. 

To request an oral communication fellow for spring 2024, please please first consult the Fellows Program Handbook. If you determine an oral communication fellow would benefit your classroom, please request one by emailing Nick Gadino, Associate Director for Communication Studies, at ngadino@udel.edu.
