The Interdisciplinary Writing Program offers dynamic and innovative internship opportunities for undergraduate students. These opportunities are designed to directly and indirectly support student writing and to promote a writing-rich culture across campus.
Please contact the IWP Director if you are interested in working as an Intern with the IWP or if you are interested in having an Intern provide writing support to students in your program or courses.
To date, our enthusiastic Interns have been involved in student motivation surveys, writing consultations, teaching presentations, mentoring international peers, and more.
You can explore the current projects of our Interns, or learn more about the participants below and through our Media and blogs page.
