Lorraine D. Higgins

My field is rhetoric; I challenge students to see writing as a form of inquiry and problem solving. It is not simply window dressing for ideas they already have, but a way to create and test ideas and to engage in a dialogue with a community of readers. Read more...

  • Interim Academic Associate Dean, School of Business

  • Adjunct Instructor

When teaching, I particularly enjoy combining theory with my own “real-world” experience to give students a perspective on howprofessional writing differs from what they have done before.  Seeing students embrace technical-writing principles and produce professional-quality documents by the end of a single term makes teaching at WPI extremely rewarding.  Learn more...
