Annual Conference & Other Events

The SLAC-WPA conference is hosted each January on the campus of a participating small liberal arts college. This two-day event is designed to foster deep conversation about current interests, issues, and research that inform teaching and writing administration at small liberal arts colleges. The annual call for proposals is posted in mid-September. Please check the designated conference page for details as they develop.

Update, May 2021

While we look forward to gathering with you all to swap ideas, curricula, and stories, and renew friendships, and while we miss seeing people in three dimensions as much as anyone, we are sorry to announce that our January 2022 SLAC-WPA Conference in Claremont, California has been postponed to January 2023.

And we are pleased to announce that we will gather for our next SLAC-WPA Conference in Claremont, CA in January 2023. The five undergraduate Claremont Colleges will jointly host this moveable feast. We look forward to guided and not-so-guided conversations among colleagues and long discussions over coffee and drinks. Our respective campuses are welcoming and January in Southern California is almost always stunningly lovely. We hope you will mark your calendars.

Best, Wendy Menefee-Libey, on behalf of the SLAC-WPA Executive Board
