Richard Bullock has directed the Writing Programs in the Department of English since 1986. During that time he created the Introduction to College Writing Workshop, the first program in the country to combine practice teaching for Graduate Teaching Assistants with a precollege workshop for incoming first-year students; orchestrated the development of outcomes-based writing courses; and developed a system of ongoing professional development for writing faculty that led to the program being awarded the Association of General and Liberal Studies Assessment Award in 2010. In addition, he designed the university’s Writing Across the Curriculum program, created and ran a summer institute for English and Language Arts teachers that served over 1000 K-college teachers in its 19-year history, and created the Wright State Writing Academy to help at-risk incoming students develop the reading and writing skills and academic habits of mind they will need to succeed in college. Bullock is the author, co-author, editor, or co-editor of several books, including The Norton Field Guides to Writing, now in their third edition, which are the most-required rhetoric textbooks in the United States and are used in over 500 schools.
