The Rhetoric and Composition faculty and graduate students are committed to excellence in their research, teaching, and service. In their research, our faculty and graduate students employ a number of methodological approaches to investigate writing, texts, and language across contexts. Their publications and presentations join and shape conversations in the fields of rhetoric, communication, composition, linguistics, pedagogy, and others. We invite you to explore the contributions our faculty and graduate students have made to these areas of study, as well as selected awards and honors they have received along the way.
