Biography:

Sarah Collins is the Writing Specialist at The Learning Hub and a clinical instructor for the Department of English and Modern Languages, teaching both film studies and freshman composition. Her favorite part of working at UIS is the personal, one-on-one relationships she has fostered with students and staff.

“I always look forward to what each new student can teach me just as much as I love instilling a love of learning in them.”
