News & Announcements
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.

The results from the 2015 election have been tabulated! Please join me in congratulating our newly elected officials:

Welcome to all of you!
Good news! We are now able to accept submissions for the WPA-GO Travel Grants for CCCC until next Friday, February 13th. The deadline has been extended from the original date of February 6th. If you are a graduate student presenting at CCCC or any of the related forums, please submit a proposal to WPA-GO. We are making several awards, and the process is pretty straightforward so there is still time. Details are below. Advisors--please alert your student advisees.
I am a graduate student at Eastern Michigan University and will be gathering data for our first year writing program by asking questions to students on the effectiveness of the program and their thoughts, feelings, and work processes used in their first year writing classes. I was hoping someone would be able to share their IRB protocol with me so I can have a stronger grasp on the process and the research I will conduct in March.
