Adam BanksDoug Hesse

Doug Hesse, NCTE President-Elect, is Professor and founding Executive Director of Writing at the University of Denver, where he was named University Distinguished Scholar. Previously, he chaired the Conference on College Composition and Communication, was President of the Council of Writing Program Administrators, and held leadership roles within MLA.  He spent 20 years at Illinois State University, where he directed the writing program, the Center for the Advancement of Teaching, and the University Honors Program.  Hesse’s numerous articles and four co-authored books focus on creative nonfiction and the personal essay; on narrative, rhetoric, and belles lettres; and on professional issues in writing programs.  He’s been keynote or plenary speaker at some forty conferences, and he has consulted and completed program reviews at some fifty colleges and universities.  His current projects include a longitudinal study of 60 undergraduate writers, archival work on the correspondence of the first astronomer at the University of Denver, a collection of personal essays, and a defense of journalism in composition studies.  Hesse’s PhD is from Iowa. He’s an avid hiker and photographer, and he sings professionally with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus.
