Our Approach

Mission


The Philadelphia Area Council of Writing Program Administrators advocates best practices in writing programs for all postsecondary institutions in our region. A nonprofit, professional organization, we support research in our field; collaborate for professional development; and champion labor equity for composition practitioners of every rank, status, and area of responsibility. We bring our mutual strength to advance literacy for our communities, for our institutions, and for our students.
