About the Writing Center

The UNO Writing Center is not just a place; it is people: writers talking with writers about writing. Established in 2005 through Programs of Excellence funding, the center evolved from vision to actuality through the efforts of Shelton Hendricks, former dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; Michael Skau, former chair of the Department of English; and Connie Eberhart, the center’s first director. Dorianne Richards directed the center from 2007 until her retirement in 2010. The current directors are Travis Adams and Kathy Radosta.


Our staff consists of undergraduate consultants, graduate teaching assistants, and post graduate consultants, who all undergo extensive training. This training prepares our consultants to help writers improve their skills and confidence in all types of writing, on any subject matter, and at any stage of the writing process.


Director of the UNO Writing Center - Dr. G. Travis Adams is also the head of the Writing Across the Curriculum initiative for the University.

Associate Director of the UNO Writing Center - Kathy Radosta is an instructor in the English department, teaching both composition and ESL courses.
