Archive Story


Starting her post-high school educational journey at Fresno Community College, Professor Nicole Gonzales Howell went to earn her BA at the University of Southern California. After a 10-year hiatus from higher education, Howell received her MA from California State University Fresno and earned her Ph. D. from Syracuse University in Composition and Cultural Rhetoric.

In 2014, Howell was selected as one of the Ethnic Minority Dissertation Fellows at the University of San Francisco (now the Gerardo Marin Dissertation Fellows). Prior to her time as a dissertation fellow at USF, Nicole taught a variety of writing courses ranging from first-year composition to upper division courses for writing majors.

In addition to teaching, Howell has also been a writing center consultant and graduate editor for Syracuse University. Much of Nicole's research focused on the importance of considering social location (race, gender, class, ability, and sexuality) of both students and teachers and how it relates to many aspects of writing instruction, teacher effect, program administration, and in particular writing assessment. Nicole's current projects are focused on creating accessible teaching practices from k-12 to graduate study.
