Small Liberal Arts Colleges-Writing Program Administrators (SLAC-WPA) was founded in 2007 when a group of writing administrators came together at Swarthmore College to talk about teaching, writing curriculum, and writing support. The central mission of SLAC-WPA is to support the teaching of writing at small liberal arts colleges where size, residentiality, curriculum, and faculty structure present unique opportunities for teaching writing. SLAC-WPA welcomes information and discussion about administrative and scholarly practices, and supports research on the theories, histories, and cultures associated with writing in the liberal arts. In addition, SLAC-WPA hosts an annual conference to address issues that emerge in administering writing programs and writing centers, to share research on teaching writing in the liberal arts, and to foster a nationally-inflected collective identity.
