On Friday, May 13th, UNC-Chapel Hill hosted the 2016 North Carolina Directors' Day. It was a great day with representation from writing center administrators and professionals from over 20 schools and universities in North Carolina. Participants got to know colleagues from around the state and shared questions and ideas about our work. With a theme of "Staffing," our discussion topics included everything from marketing, recruiting tutors, and writing center research, to staff development, strategies for creating community, and more.
"Thank you to everyone who participated in Directors’ Day! It was a pleasure to have you at our writing center and to be a part of so many exciting discussions. I look forward to seeing everyone at our fall Tutor Collaboration Day!" says site host Vicki Behrens. If you missed this great day, don't fret. You can join us at our next state gathering at ECU for Tutor Collaboration Day in the Fall!
