|In Memoriam – Glyn Salton-Cox
The English Department is devastated to announce the death over the New Year of our colleague Glyn Salton-Cox. To his family, loved ones, and friends here, in his native Britain, and throughout the world, we offer our deepest and most heartfelt condolences. Glyn was a brilliant scholar, a very popular teacher, and the kindest of colleagues.
The Department of English invites you to a commemoration of our colleague Glyn Salton-Cox on Friday, March 3d, 2023.
We will gather in the Faculty Club’s Betty Elings Wells Pavilion at 3:00 pm and then move to the Terrace at 4:00 pm for a reception. Please let us know of any accessibility requests.
The English Peer Mentoring Program
Introducing the English Peer Mentor Program
The English Peer Mentoring Program is committed to providing a welcoming environment for incoming students with an interest in literature and literary study. We believe one of the best ways to support students new to the university – first-year, transfer, & first-generation college students – is through peer-to-peer connection. Through social events, informational programming, and mentorship, we support academic and personal endeavors, provide information about resources, and help cultivate strong social connections. We aim to motivate student involvement in the major, maximize connection to the campus community, and enrich the college experience of students with a passion for literature. Accessibility and inclusivity are at the forefront of our mission. We hope to shape an intellectual and emotional space rooted in belonging.
What We Do
We are committed to providing a welcoming environment for incoming students with an interest in literature and literary study. Our undergraduate peer mentors share a passion for providing help, guidance, and community for fellow undergraduates, particularly those who may struggle with navigating or feeling they “belong” in a university setting–you don’t need to be a declared English major to benefit from our program!
Throughout the quarter we will host several social and informational events to help connect current and prospective English majors to each other and extend the opportunities the major has to offer. For more information, or to join our listserv, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our peer mentor team will also offer “office hours” where you can ask any questions you have about the major, available opportunities, research goals, personal goals, concerns, and more!
