Warrior Scholar 2015

In June of 2015 I had the honor of teaching 20 veterans at the University of Michigan’s second Warrior-Scholar Project. I was once again blown away by the dedication and perseverance the students showed as they struggled–and succeeded–to complete complex readings, participate in thoughtful class discussions, and write 3 papers–all in one week!

I wasn’t the only one to take notice of the program:

This year I had the privilege to serve as one of two writing instructors at the University of Michigan Warrior-Scholar Project. The student newspaper, the Michigan Daily, wrote an article about some of the awesome students and staff we had at the program this year! The photo features one of our students and my fellow writing instructor, Mary Beth Harris.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the 2014 Warrior-Scholar Project (WSP) at Yale University as part of my preparation to serve as a writing instructor at the inaugural pilot program of WSP at the University of Michigan. While there, I joined the students in visiting the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscript library:
