The UWC is staffed by a director, graduate assistant directors, graduate consultants, undergraduate consultants, and undergraduate office assistants.
Dr. Alexander has served as Director of the University Writing Center since May 2017. Dr. Alexander joined the faculty at Baylor in 2006 after finishing a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Composition from the University of Louisville. She is currently an associate professor in the Professional Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) Program in the English Department. Her research examines the ways that writers use writing to develop identity and effect change. She is interested in the ways that writers negotiate and fulfill the complex task of writing, including the narratives they tell about writing, the challenges they face as writers, and how they transfer what they know about writing to various contexts.
Since joining the Baylor faculty, Dr. Alexander has taught a range of courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, including literacy studies, argumentative and persuasive writing, digital and multimodal composition, technical writing, professional and workplace writing, and creative nonfiction. She served as Coordinator of the PWR major from 2013-2017, and a Baylor Fellow for the Academy of Teaching and Learning from 2014-2015. She also served as the resident director of the Baylor in Maastricht Study Abroad Program in Summer 2017.
Since becoming director of the UWC, Dr. Alexander hired the first cohort of undergraduate consultants (2018-2019), implemented online tutorial sessions, initiated an executed a move to Moody Library in 2019, and added walk-in hours for the UWC.
