Hugo Werstler is thrilled to be the Executive Assistant of the Writing Program.

He has been a part of the USD campus community for over seven years now, beginning first as an undergraduate student in 2010. Back then, Hugo was a student-athlete playing football as a proud Torero! He graduated in 2014 with a bachelor degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing and continued to work at the local marine park, SeaWorld while serving the USD campus community as a volunteer. He later received the opportunity to return to USD as an administrative assistant for multiple departments including the Pardee Legal Center, Office of Development for Athletics, and the Department of Human Resources. His work experience in customer service, project management, and employee hiring and supervision had allowed Werstler to make significant contributions to the continued excellence of the university. He is determined to continue his education at USD in pursuit of a masters and PhD in Higher Education Leadership so as to achieve his career goal of becoming the next President of the University of San Diego.

As the Executive Assistant of the Writing Program, Werstler is tasked with the program's day-to-day maintenance as well as USD's Writing Center. He is thrilled to return alongside the English Department that contributed so much to his undergraduate degree and assist the faculty involved in teaching curriculum developed by the Writing Program. Lastly, Werstler has collaborated with multiple departments in creating marketing and informational videos for the university. He plans to continue to use his creative skills in the development of further marketing projects for the Writing Program and Writing Center.

Hugo also makes use of his degree in English towards his pursuit of writing. While there are currently no copies of his work available in print, you are welcome to view his writing projects at his website:
