Dr. Trisha Egbert serves as the USciences Coordinator of the Writing Center and is an Assistant Professor for the Writing Programs. Dr. Egbert earned her doctoral degree from Rowan University in May 2011. She is also a graduate of Texas A&M University (2007) and Rutgers University (2004). Dr. Egbert’s dissertation study focused on first-year female, minority, and low-income STEM students involved in a residential learning community. The study sought to investigate the influence the educational learning community had on the students' transition to college, connection to campus, and peer-to-peer and peer-to-faculty relationships. Dr. Egbert has taught several sections of rhetoric, expository writing, scientific and technical writing, business writing, and engineering writing. These classes included traditional face-to-face writing classes as well as hybrid courses (mix of online and face-to-face format).
