Welcome to the IWCA Summer Institute
The 12th annual Summer Institute will take place in Lexington, Kentucky on June 22-27, 2014 at the Lexington Hilton.

The Summer Institute continues an established tradition the International Writing Center Association began in 2003. 
See the history of previous sites.  

The Summer Institute is ideal for current or would-be writing center directors and assistants, writing program administrators, tutors, writing teachers (high school or college), curriculum developers, graduate students, new Ph.D.s, and academic leaders.

SI leaders offer presentations and discussions on a variety of writing center topics. Leaders also work one-on-one with participants throughout the week. Participants from around the world are encouraged to apply.
"I feel a part of the writing center community in a way I never have before, despite attending several conferences and working in a thriving center. Everyone was so supportive, and it was fascinating to hear about their experiences."
