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, and Romantic-period British literature. Her YC Core courses address the history of authorship and English as a global phenomenon. She has served as the Chair of the YC English Department since 2015.
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.
Along with journal articles and book chapters, Professor Fitzgerald has published The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors: Practice and Research (2015), and with her coauthor, Professor Melissa Ianetta of the University of Delaware, edited The Writing Center Journal (2008-13).
