Moran ePortfolio Awards

The Michael G. Moran ePortfolio Awards


Beginning in 2007, the English Department began recognizing the excellent work being done in electronic portfolios for English 1101 and 1102 by presenting the portfolio awards. Named in honor of Michael G. Moran, a former director of the First-Year Writing Program (formerly known as First-year Composition) who did much to shape and improve the program and who has continued to support it by serving loyally on the First-Year Writing Committee, the awards consist of cash prizes and publication of selected exhibits from the winning ePortfolios in the FYW Guide. They are viewable also from the links below.
