Stating Your Purpose: Connecting Communities to College Access
(Track A: Community and Civic Engagement)

Presenters: Dr. Misty Anderson, Professor, English
Dr. Kat Powell, Judith Anderson Herbert Writing Center
Kelly Sauskojus & Maggie Hess, PhD Candidates, English

In the summer of 2021, the English department piloted a college admissions essay tutoring program for Austin-East rising seniors that has grown into an initiative of the Judith Anderson Herbert Writing Center, directed by Dr. Kirsten Benson. This session will focus on how pilot tutors Kelly Sauskojus and Maggie Hess guided our approach to the second phase, and how we are scaling support and connecting the project to our Creative Writing series as a way to support this important arts magnet school.
