Head shot Assistant Director of the Writing Center Rachel Herzl-Betz

Rachel Herzl-Betz, Ph.D.

I am the Assistant Director of the Writing Center and I teach English classes in the humanities department. I earned my BA in English from Carleton College, where I first discovered the Writing Center community. While earning my PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I began pursuing research that engages with the connections between disability studies and Writing Center training, hiring, theory, and practice. My publications include an article in the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies, a chapter in Fabricating the Body, and, most recently, a YA novel.
I chose Writing Center work in part because I love helping students share Writing-focused research with the wider academic community. Since joining the NSC community, I founded the English Department’s Composition Pedagogy Reading Group, the Writing Center Speaker Series, and the Faculty/Staff Writing Group. When I’m not on campus, I enjoy visiting coffee shops, playing with my daughter, and rewatching tv shows I can already quote from memory.
