This year's theme,
Alternate Routes: New Directions in Writing Center Work,
Well...here I am about to develop a WAC program, a Writing Center, and an official writing program from within a rather complex structure. My new university is a "regional center," a step-child of sorts. The main campus is structured as a traditional university nearly 2000 miles away, but they create the course manuals and curricula for adult students (23 years of age and older) in accelerated undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
