Balancing a Workload - NIU - Writing Across the Curriculum


The NIU Writing Consultants Handbook

Balancing the Workload

Writing consultants are partners in the ongoing effort to improve student writing at NIU, and it is part of the agreement between the English department and hosting departments that consultants will not be assigned to perform a narrow set of tasks such as grading papers or running one-person writing centers-in-exhile.

According to the mission statement of the Writing Consultants Program, consultants should act in an expanded capacity. Therefore, a balance must be maintained so that both parties benefit equally. The exact allocation of hours and duties is to be established between each consultant and chair of the hosting department.
