George Asimos is a passionate, student-focused educator whose personal philosophy mirrors Cabrini’s commitment to social justice and leadership development. Asimos believes that his role is to be a sponsor in the classroom, helping students to achieve the goals they set for their success both at Cabrini and beyond.
Currently, Asimos works primarily in the first-year writing program, helping students to prepare for the rigors of academic work. He has also participated eagerly in the Learning Community program since his arrival in 2015, believing that the thematic content and personal support of faculty greatly increases the quality of the first-year experience and lays a strong foundation for future success.
While most of his time is spent working with writers directly, Asimos also has a life-long passion for 20th century American literature; he has an MA from Villanova University in this area. He also has a background in critical theory, and has spent time studying the work of several contemporary philosophers.
Currently, Asimos is working on his dissertation in Composition and Rhetoric at Temple University.
Interests: first-year and basic writing, critical theory, 20th century American literature, Beat literature, modernist literature, postmodern literature, the American short story, digital and contemporary rhetoric, community literacy and composition.
