Dr. Sherry Wynn Perdue holds a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, an M.A. in English/American Studies, and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Humanities. She has actively participated in curriculum development and peer mentoring in addition to teaching composition within the Writing and Rhetoric Department since 1996. In 2009, Sherry affirmed her commitment to the lively art (and science) of writing at OU by taking the helm of the writing center, where she spends most of her consulting hours collaborating with faculty on their scholarly publications and with graduate students on their theses and dissertations. More recently, she piloted a dissertation supervision fellowship to help faculty better meet the genre needs of their doctoral students.

When not teaching or working one-on-one with clients, she is collecting data, developing training curriculum, mentoring one of the center’s writing consultants, or presenting at conferences. Sherry’s concurrent role as a College Board Consultant for AP English Language affirms her belief that high school students need rigorous preparation and their teachers need pedagogical support.

Sherry’s publications on evidence-based research in writing centers, the unique needs of dissertation writers and their supervisors, and information literacy have appeared in The Writing Center JournalEducation LibrariesPerspectives in Undergraduate Research and Mentoring, and the Journal of Academic Librarianship. In addition to penning her own publications, she serves as a reviewer and runs WriteSpace Consulting, an editing and custom writing business.
