2024 Summer Institute

The 2024 WAC Summer Institute will take place June 19 – 22, 2024 in Albuquerque, NM. The institute will take place in-person and will be capped at 35 participants.

The WAC Summer Institute is an intensive development program designed to:

  1. Assist new and prospective leaders of WAC/WID or similar initiatives in the US and internationally in planning and developing sustainable programs, and
  2. Support experienced directors who face new challenges or wish to expand, update, or revitalize their programs.

Experienced WAC facilitators will guide participants toward the application of research-based strategies  in writing across the curriculum. (Complete list of facilitators forthcoming.) Participants will work as a large group, in small groups, and as individuals to apply WAC best practices to their own institutional contexts and goals.

The Institute schedule includes a welcome reception on Wednesday; two full days with facilitators and other participants on Thursday and Friday; and a half day of programming on Saturday.
