Who We Are

The staff at the Center for Communication Practices is composed of graduate and undergraduate students who enjoy reading and responding to writing, oral presentations, and multimodal projects from all disciplines!  All of the consultants who work at the CCP  have significant experience in composing many types of texts.  All undergraduate consultants have also excelled in a 4-credit course, Writing and Response, that has prepared them to read and respond to a wide range of texts.

Each consultant may have unique experience with specific types of communication.   Look below to read our consultant profiles before scheduling an appointment:  you may find someone especially well-suited to your needs!

Director—Dr. Barbara Lewis: Barbara is the director of the CCP and enjoys the challenge of reading technical texts from all different fields.  She also loves reading and talking about papers written for Humanities courses, and has quite a bit of experience reading resumes, cover letters, and graduate school application essays.  When she’s not working in the CCP, Barbara teaches writing courses in the Department of Communication and Media.
