Nikki Caswell is the Director of University Writing Centers, and coordinates the University Writing Center and The Bate Center. She enjoys working with the writing consultants and helping them help the students of East Carolina University. Nicole also teaches in the Writing Program and Rhetoric and Composition program.

She is currently working on a book-length treatment of the emotions teachers experience while they are reading and responding to student writing. Her new research projects consider the emotions of teachers and students in a writing classroom and how emotions are constructed through responses. In true writing center collaborative spirit, Nicole is teaming with two other Writing Center Directors on a study to follow six new directors in their first or second year on the job.
