CWPA Affiliate Organizations
The Council of Writing Program Administrators (CWPA) welcomes affiliate organizations whose members share CWPA’s interests and commitments. CWPA affiliates should represent a range of individuals and institutions that share some common element. For example, members might share a common region (e.g., Philadelphia Area WPA) or a common institutional mission or type (e.g., Jesuit WPA, whose members all teach at Jesuit institutions).
Once proposals for Affiliate status have been granted approval by CWPA, the members of the new group can enjoy assistance and support from CWPA.
For more information about the potential benefits of Affiliate status, please contact the WPA President.
