Meet our Interim Director

 

Deepti Dhir
Interim Director - Center for Writing & Learning

Deepti is excited to bring her experience in writing centers to UPS and looks forward to working with both writing advisors and content tutors at the CWL. She has strong experience leading and supporting instructors and tutors. Most recently, she led a team of manufacturing instructors to apply best practices in teaching and learning in their courses; prior, as the Multilingual Writing Specialist and Associate Director of the Baruch College Writing Center for 4 years, she provided pedagogical leadership to a staff of professional writing consultants. She has also served as a writing across the disciplines specialist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she provided course embedded writing and speaking instruction to undergraduates across disciplines. Deepti holds a Master of Arts in Foreign Language Education and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from New York University. Her interests lie at the intersection of writing center studies, composition, and language learning. When not working, she spends time playing with her 2-year-old son and also enjoys baking at home.
