Call for Proposals: SCWCA 2019 Conference

Our next annual conference, “Elasticity: Bouncing Ideas from Center to Center,” will be co-sponsored by University of Mary Hardin Baylor and Temple Jr. College.

Seeking Nominations for Tutor of the Year

In anticipation of our 2019 Conference in Belton, Texas, the SCWCA Board is excited to announce that it is now accepting applications for the annual SCWCA Outstanding Tutor of the Year Award. The deadline is January, 15, 2019.

The Outstanding Tutor of the Year Award is designed to give recognition to tutors who provide extraordinary service to the students, the center, and the campus community — with an eye towards participation in the broader scholarly community. The award is provided to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff whose primary responsibility is to tutor in a writing center. The outstanding tutor award recognizes innovative tutoring techniques, the quality of work with writers, articulation of tutoring philosophy, and contributions to the writing center beyond tutoring.

Submit nominations or direct questions to Randall W. Monty, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, at
