The SWCA Christine Cozzens Research Grant and Initiative Program is designed to encourage collaboration among new and established centers, support professional development for writing center administrators and staff, and further writing center research and scholarship throughout the SWCA region.
The SWCA Executive Board named this award after Dr. Cozzens to recognize her contributions to the professional development of the organization, to the growth of the writing center field as a whole, and to the lives of her tutors and students. Dr. Cozzens and her Agnes Scott College writing tutors have been active members of the SWCA community for over 20 years and have long been providing the region with Southern Discourse, the only print publication among all writing center regionals. Additionally, Dr. Cozzens and her tutors have long been recognized as some of the strongest contributors to the writing center conversations that occur in the southeast and the country.
