This year’s SI  will feature an engaging line-up of topics and leaders for an unforgettable week in a truly magnificent location. The SI is an ideal way to introduce newcomers to the field, or to renew enthusiasm among established professionals. Directors, faculty members, tutors, graduate students – anyone who works in a writing center or tutoring center, or aspires to – will benefit from this year’s SI. The website is http://writingcenters.org/links/iwca-summer-institute-2/ .  Please pass this along to someone you know, or consider attending yourself.

Chicago), Lisya Seloni (Illinois State), Steve Price (Mississippi College), and Kerri Jordan (Mississippi College).

What:  The SI is five full days of lively discussions, gentle debates, new friendships, and dynamic presentations on tutor development, assessment, research, and diversity.  Plus….. trail walks through 500 million year old granite outcroppings, evenings by the lake, campfires, singing, and relaxation.  Read more about the curriculum, accommodations, and cost at    http://writingcenters.org/links/iwca-summer-institute-2/
