Adler-Kassner is Professor of Writing and Director of the Writing Program at University of California, Santa Barbara, where she teach undergraduate and graduate classes in composition.
Her research focuses broadly on the ways that audiences inside and outside the university understand writing and literacy; on how people act on those understandings (in the past and in the present); and on the implications of those actions for writing programs and institutions.
She has worked on issues connected with writing assessment, public policy, and strategies for writing instructors and program directors to engage in discussions about writing with audiences on and off their campuses.
Through July 2011, Adler-Kassner is President of the Council of Writing Program Administrators, an organization for individuals with an interest in postsecondary writing instruction and program direction.
