UNG senior lecturer of English Lisa Diehl has earned the 2019 Gabriele Stauf Residency Award.

Lisa Diehl, a senior lecturer of English at the University of North Georgia (UNG), has earned the 2019 Gabriele Stauf Residency Award.

The award gives Diehl a two-week residency at Piedmont College's Lillian E. Smith (LES) Center, an educational center and artist retreat in Clayton, Georgia. The honor is named for Stauf, a professor emerita of English at Georgia Southwestern State University and LES Center Fellow who sponsors the award annually.

"I earned my master's degree in teaching at Piedmont, so I am deeply honored to be selected for this award," Diehl said. "I intend to use the two-week residency in July to finalize my dissertation, which addresses the embedded tutoring program I created and implemented at UNG, as well as continue my research and development of the social justice-themed composition classes I teach at UNG."

The embedded tutoring program at UNG places writing center tutors in English composition classrooms to assist first-year students.

Diehl also earned a scholarship to the American Association of University Professors-Collective Bargaining Congress (AAUP-CBC) Summer Institute set for July 25-28 at Roosevelt University in Chicago. The scholarship covers registration, some meals and a travel stipend.

Diehl is an internationally published poet with more than 10 poetry publications exhibiting her work. She supervises the embedded tutoring program at UNG.

She chairs the "Teaching Writing in College" conference forums for the annual Midwest Modern Language Association conference and the South Atlantic Modern Language Association conference.
