Based on the tried-and-true notion that collaboration among peers is one of our most effective methods of learning, the TRAC Writing Fellows Program at Lehigh University is committed to promoting a campus-wide culture in which writing and communication in its many forms are central to learning. In this culture, communication and inquiry are vitally linked, restraints on learning imposed by traditional disciplinary boundaries are eased, and students and faculty are all part of one vibrant intellectual community.
Who We Are, and What We Do
The TRAC Writing Fellows are talented student writers from all three undergraduate colleges who are selected through a highly competitive application process to work as peer tutors in courses across the disciplines. Trained in a rigorous 4-credit seminar course, the fellows assist students with all phases of the writing process, consult with faculty on assignment design, and help with library and database research and the use of educational technologies.
New TRAC Fellows are selected each spring semester. Applications for Spring 2017 will be available during the Spring Semester. To learn more about the application process, click on the link above or on "Interested in Becoming a TRAC Fellow?".
