Partnerships Committee

The Partnerships Committee promotes equitable and high-impact approaches to writing instruction and assessment through partnerships with organizations whose purposes align with AWAC’s goals. These include higher education organizations such as AAC&U, GSOLE, IWCA, and CCCC, and K-12 organizations such as NWP and NCTE. Partnership activities may include:

  • Faculty development opportunities and events
  • Events and resources to support student writing
  • Events and resources aimed at promoting research in writing
  • Events and resources focused on advocacy
  • Representing AWAC on boards and committees of related organizations

The Partnerships committee works closely with the other AWAC committees through the Executive Board to align outreach efforts with the work of the various AWAC committees and the goals of the organization.
