For Minors

Minor in Writing Advising

To help you achieve your goals for the Minor and assure your progress through the portfolio archiving process, you should plan to meet at least once each semester with an advisor to discuss your academic plan, assess your progress, and get answers to any questions you may have. Graduating Minors must meet with their advisors in the semester before graduation to complete their Minor Release form. Advisors are also available to review your blog, archive, and portfolio with you in order to brainstorm, discuss choices and revisions, consider layout, visual rhetoric, navigation, and more.

To meet with a Minor in Writing advisor, schedule an appointment using the button above.

Advisors:
Julie Babcock (babcockj@umich.edu)
Paul Barron (pdbarron@umich.edu)
T Hetzel (hetzel@umich.edu)
Shelley Manis (smanis@umich.edu)
Raymond McDaniel (raymcd@umich.edu)
