Writing Commons Establishes Named Professional Development Fund: Spring 2011

Posted Mar. 6, 2011
Professor John C. Tamplin, Kent State University alum and volunteer Writing Commons Tutor, has established the university’s first named fund in support of the Writing Commons.  Professor Tamplin volunteers as a tutor 6 hours every week and regularly makes financial contributions to the Writing Commons to send undergraduate tutors to professional conferences.  With the establishment of the Tamplin Fund, lack of financial resources will never again stand in the way of a tutor’s professional growth.  “Professor Tamplin is our Writing Commons angel,” says Jeanne Smith, Director of the Writing Commons. “We are tremendously grateful for everything he is doing to improve our campus writing center.”
