The Writing Program of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences was renamed the Bobbie and Stanton Cook Family Writing Program on May 13, 2015, after the Cook family made a significant gift to the program that touches every part of Northwestern.
Writing Program faculty remember with joy and sadness our former colleague and friend, Edith Skom, who taught in the Program for over 30 years. Edie was a dedicated teacher and mystery writer who brought wit, compassion, and intelligence to us and to her many students. For more on Edie’s life and accomplishments, see http://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2016/02/northwestern-writing-professor-edith-rosen-skom-dies.html
She is developing new material to support student engagement in Design Thinking and Communication (DTC).
As the Diamond Jubilee Fellowship recipient, she gave the keynote address at a symposium at Southampton University, UK.
Charles Yarnoff was selected as a member of the Writing Program for the Associated Student Government (ASG) Faculty and Administrator Honor Roll. Robert Gundlach was also selected as a member of the Linguistics Department.
