She also serves as the editorial advisor for the literary journal, Flumes. Koenig’s participation in the California Acceleration Project and the Basic Skills Initiative Leadership Institute resulted in the collaborative development of an accelerated composition course and a cross-disciplinary faculty inquiry group.
