Carol Rutz has directed the College Writing Program since 1997. In addition to teaching at least two writing courses per year, she works closely with faculty to help them employ writing in their courses--whatever the discipline. Recently, she has been active in the Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, and Knowledge (QuIRK) initiative, which seeks to teach students to use quantitative reasoning in written argument. Her research interests include response to student writing, assessment of writing, and assessment of faculty development. Degrees: Gustavus Adolphus, B.A.; Hamline, M.A.; Minnesota, PhD.
