Thanks in large part to a generous endowment gift from T. Dixon Long, which supports the operations of the Writing Resource Center, the English department and the Writing Resource Center now occupy two-thirds of historic Bellflower Hall. You can read more about Bellflower Hall in this history, penned by Professor Kurt Koenigsberger for the English department’s newsletter.
This beautiful (but in need of much TLC) space allows us to imagine a home for writing on campus – a “Writers House” – that will draw together students and faculty, provide instructional spaces designed to enhance writing/reading instruction, and increase Writing Program and English Department outreach and visibility.
