The USP Council is comprised of members of the UW Oshkosh campus community who are supporting the early implementation of this new general education program (2012–2014). In the next several USP Updates, we will continue to introduce members of this collaborative team.
Samantha Looker, Quest Writing Coordinator
Sam Looker is an assistant professor in English and directs the Writing-Based Inquiry Seminar (WBIS) program, which forms the Writing component of the Quest phase of the USP.
