Meet Dr. Susan Murphy

Susan Wolff Murphy, Ph.D.

"Teaching in honors lets me pursue my interests in rhetoric, writing, and research. For students who are discouraged, I can help them feel more confident. For students who are already confident I hope to help them gain more sophisticated skills in using writing to achieve their goals. The students in honors are diverse in their interests, majors, career paths, and skills. It is always rewarding to work with them."
