The English Department is one of the largest academic units at UW-SP. Some 30 faculty offer a full range of classes from freshman composition and humanities GDRs to upper-division literature, writing, and teacher education classes fulfilling the requirements of our Major/Minors. Our commitment to teaching is of primary importance, but department members also manage to engage productively in a variety of scholarly and creative projects. We have almost an even mix of experienced and relatively recent faculty members and, as we continue to grow, we are dedicated to increasing the diversity of our department and of the institution as a whole.
UW-SP is located in Stevens Point on the Wisconsin River, almost precisely in the center of the state. It is the only degree-granting institution in north-central Wisconsin, offering 54 undergraduate majors and master's degrees in 12 disciplines, including the M.S.T. (English). Enrollment is 8000-8500 students, served by over 400 faculty, over 200 academic staff, and about 350 support staff members. The campus contains both historic and contemporary buildings in an attractively landscaped setting, bounded on one side by a 200-acre nature preserve with its man-made lake.

2) Graduate training and/or experience in teaching a variety of writing courses preferred
