New Executive Secretary

Update: Our executive secretary Katya Pilkington is no longer going by the name Theo, which was originally included in this announcement. Katya asks that you refer to them by Katya, Kat, or Mx. Pilkington. Thank you for your patience and understanding!


Theo Pilkington Executive Secretary

Katya is a current Writing and Rhetoric Studies major and Writing Studies Scholar. Their academic interests include queer rhetorics and disability studies, with a particular focus on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in higher education.

What they like about their new role?

“I’m really enjoying getting to know people better. Being both staff and student means that I have a unique perspective of the Department of Writing and Rhetoric Studies. Being able to help bridge gaps between students’ needs and the different resources around the department is so engaging.”

If you haven’t met them yet (and even if you have) come stop by the Department of Writing and Rhetoric Studies’ front desk in LNCO 3700 and say hello to our executive secretary Katya Pilkington!
