News & Announcements
Interdisciplinary and community projects create meaningful student collaborations, work as sites for promoting learning transfer and help participants understand complex ideas about texts, text-making and creative activity. When partnerships include service learning, students become activists who create texts for a real audience and purpose. Our work with an AIDS foundation and animal shelter demonstrates this.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered to serve on a committee for CWPA during the 2015-2016 academic year! Our new committee rosters are posted at http://wpacouncil.org/committee-assignments, and committee assignments run from July 1, 2015-June 30, 2016.
Today, Susan Miller-Cochran takes over as President, and Dominic DelliCarpini as Vice President, of CWPA. Congratulations to them--the organization is in great hands!

WPA-GO and the CWPA Mentoring Project are excited to again sponsor a "Breakfast Buddy" Mentoring Event at this year's CWPA summer conference in Boise, Idaho! Graduate students, new faculty or staff, or first-time conference attendees who sign-up for this event will be matched with a mentor “breakfast buddy” from another institution.
Then paired buddies will meet and chat together during one of the WPA communal breakfasts on Friday, July 18, 2015—our way of encouraging light-hearted, cross-institutional mentoring.
