Employment

To find out more about our current student employment opportunities, please contact the University Writing Center at (775) 784-6030.

The University Writing Center is partially funded by student fees. As part of our commitment to the students who support the Writing Center, we employ undergraduate and graduate students as writing consultants. Typically the University Writing Center recruits new writing consultants at the end of each semester. Mandatory trainings are held before each new semester. In addition, writing consultants are expected to attend monthly workshops as part of their obligation to the University Writing Center.

Many of our newly hired writing consultants are students who have taken ENG 408b/608b Tutoring Student Writers, which provides a theoretical foundation and practical, hands-on experience in the University Writing Center as part of the curriculum.
