Math and Writing Center Updates

Posted by isulib on October 20, 2015

Ms. Ellie Pounds, who has served as the Math & Writing Center’s administrative assistant for the past year and as a leader in math tutoring in the past, is now the Interim Coordinator of the center. In the past, Ellie has worked on marketing and special programs like the Summer Math Refresher and Math Fellows for the center.

Her work will now include hiring, training, and directly supervising the MWC’s 45 tutors and front desk workers, as well as scheduling workshops and in-class presentations. Her creativity, professionalism, and enthusiasm for implementing programs that help students develop a love for math and writing will surely continue to benefit her in this new role.

Ms. Pounds will now serve as the primary contact for scheduling presentations, or for questions about appointments and policies.

Nicole Bailey, Executive Director of Student Success, remains available to consult with faculty about writing-specific concerns.

Feedback or ideas regarding the center’s programming can be directed to either Ellie (Ellie.Pounds@indstate.edu) or Bailey (Nicole.Bailey@indstate.edu).
