About Terri A. Fredrick

Dr. Fredrick is passionate about teaching and civic engagement. In her classes, students apply their communication skills through partnership projects with nonprofit organizations, local government offices, and EIU departments. She coordinates internships for the English department and works closely with senior professional writing minors as they prepare for life after the BA. Much of Dr. Fredrick's research mirrors this interest in student learning and experiential education: she writes and presents on service learning, classroom collaborative projects, and evaluation and assessment of student writing. In addition, she works closely with current and future college teachers through the graduate composition program and as a staff member of the Wakonse Conference on College Teaching. Dr. Fredrick is also a co-advisor to PRIDE (the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and ally student organization at EIU) and a member of the LGBTQA Advisory Committee.
