Join Our Team


Thank you for your interest in working at the University Writing Center!

We are glad you're interested in working with us. The University Writing Center (UWC) at BU provides over 4,000 in-person and online consultations annually to Baylor writers. As part of Baylor's distinctive Christian mission, the UWC fosters diversity in all of its dimensions, including our hiring practices. Since we support writers from all backgrounds, languages, and abilities, we are especially interested in a diverse staff in terms of race, nationality, linguistic background, gender, and worldview, as well as academic major and other factors.

Undergraduate Positions Available

We have two main positions for undergraduate students:

  • Undergraduate Writing Consultants: Our Call for Applications is sent out in Feb/March, and we interview in April for the following academic year.
     
  • Office Assistants: We hire OAs on an ongoing basis. When we have a position available, we post it on the Baylor Student Employment page.

Become an Undergraduate Consultant

If you would like to become an undergraduate writing consultant, we recommend that you:

  1. Enroll in English 3321: Tutoring Writing. This course is offered in the spring of each year and is open to students at any classification (freshman through senior) and from any major. It can serve as an upper-level elective or a required upper-level English class. Students in this course gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience studying writing and tutoring theory and pedagogy. They also work as apprentices in the University Writing Center and even tutor on their own toward the end of the semester. When making decisions on which undergraduate consultants to hire, students who have taken this course are given priority for a position and start at a higher starting salary than those who do not take the course.
     
  2. Sign up to be on our list of potential hires. When our Call for Applications is ready in the spring, you can sign up to receive an alert that the applications are ready. If you want to be on this list, send an email to UWC@baylor.edu and let us know which position you are interested in.

If you have questions, email us at UWC@baylor.edu.

Prospective Graduate Consultants

Currently, all of our graduate consultants come from the English Department and work here as part of their assistantship. We do not currently have the funding to hire or offer assistantships to graduate students from other disciplines.
