Summer Institute

The 2019 IWCA Summer Institute will be held in Baltimore, Maryland from Sunday, June 16th through Friday, June 21st. 

The Summer Institute (SI) is open to both new and experienced writing center administrators, scholars, and practitioners from universities and colleges, K-12 education, or independent writing centers. Since 2003, the SI has allowed writing center professionals to work with leaders from the field in whole-group workshops, small-group discussions, and one-on-one conversations.
