WCP Earns 2021 Regents' Teaching Excellence Award

Posted January 20, 2021

The Writing and Communication Program has been awarded the 2021 Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award for Department or Program for the University System of Georgia.

Dr. Tristan Denley, Executive Vice Chancellor & Chief Academic Officer for the USG, writes, “The Writing and Communication Program (WCP) of Georgia Tech possesses a unique mission in that it focuses both on the development of faculty and high quality service to students. The preparation of postdoctoral fellows and lecturers for the workplace could alone be the defining quality of an exceptional program, and WCP accomplishes this through an innovative curriculum of courses and resources. At the same time, WCP invites Tech students to develop skills in composition, technical communication, and learning support.”

WCP Director Melissa Ianetta will formally receive the award at a Board of Regents meeting this spring. Thanks to WCP faculty, past and present, whose efforts have contributed to the strength of our program.

WCP also received the Unit Diversity Champion Award from Georgia Tech’s Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion unit earlier this academic year.
