My name is Nathaniel Williams. This is my 8th year at UC Davis. I’ve taught business/technical writing to 1,000+ students in engineering, economics, and other majors—helping them with job search materials and writing many recommendation letters. Lecturers in my department helped build a nationally recognized writing program. Many of us lead innovative First-Year Seminars and have vibrant, far-reaching research agendas. Because we improve students’ lives and contribute to the UC’s high reputation, we deserve fair pay and fair treatment.
