Julietta Wolf-Foster Outstanding Consultant Award

The Julietta Wolf-Foster Outstanding Writing Consultant Award recognizes the consultant who most captures Julietta's exceptional qualities as a writing educator. 

Julietta was a senior consultant in the writing center and one of the first and longest-standing members of our community. Julietta approached every situation with kindness, tremendous wisdom, deep understanding of all aspects of writing, a special ability to meet the needs of a wide range of students, and a gentleness that at once conveyed “I can help” and “let’s get to work.” She was the quintessential go-to tutor.

We miss her deeply, but know that this award holds up her ongoing presence and spirit in the writing program.


Nominations for the 2023 Julietta Wolf-Foster Outstanding Writing Consultant Award are welcome from all members of the University community and will be accepted through April 7, 2023, with the award presented yearly in April.
