The committee’s mission is to plan and support formal, cross-institutional mentoring programs with events at two major conferences:
- M@Cs at the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC)
- Breakfast Buddies at the Council of Writing Program Administrators (CWPA) conference.
We hope to facilitate safe and meaningful events, both face-to-face and online.
