CWPA Award for Outstanding Scholarship on Writing Program Administration
Please circulate widely!
The Council of Writing Program Administrators seeks nominations for its Best Book Award for 2014. This award recognizes books whose authors or editors have made an outstanding contribution to the field of writing program administration over the past calendar year.
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.
