Director of the Wilf Campus (formerly Yeshiva College) Writing Center since 1997, Professor Lauren Fitzgerald has prepared hundreds of student tutors and dozens of faculty consultants to work with thousands of writers from the YU community—students, faculty, staff, and alumni. In the YC English department, she teaches courses on academic writing, digital and multimodal composing, writing research and pedagogy, Romantic-period British literature, the history of authorship, and the English language as a global phenomenon.

Professor Fitzgerald received the Council of Editors of Learned Journals’ Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement in 2010, a Dr. Kenneth Chelst Book Grant at Yeshiva College in 2012, and a Chelst, Schreiber, and Zwas YC Book Fund Award for 2017-18.
