Writing Program Honored with Certificate of Excellence
In November of 2020 our East Falls undergraduate Writing Program, embedded in the Hallmarks Program curriculum, was awarded a Writing Program Certificate of Excellence by the Conference on College Composition and Communication, which is the College Division of the National Council of Teachers of English. This is a highly competitive award, given only to programs that meet specific criteria for excellence. Our program was singled out in particular for its movement of adjunct faculty into permanent full-time positions and for its maintenance of continuity and excellence during the fluid institutional context of the PhilaU/Jefferson merger. Congratulations to Dr. Katie Gindlesparger and all the writing faculty at East Falls!
