The Writing Program is comprised of 80 faculty. They are prominent at USC not only because of their teaching excellence, but also for the scope and quality of their campus service, and many are recognized nationally in the fields of rhetoric and composition for their scholarly presentations and publications.

At the helm of the Writing Program are a Director, Senior Associate Director, and Associate Director who administer its long-term planning and day-to-day operations.

Providing essential support to the Writing Program faculty and administration is a three-person team of professional staff.
