SWCA - Virginia

The Virginia chapter of the SWCA, founded in June 2013, is a collaborative group of writing, communication, and learning center support administrators from across the state. Members share resources about tutoring and teaching writing with the purpose of advancing our professional development. We meet twice annually, typically in early June and September/October. Coordinators from high schools, community colleges, and public and private colleges and universities are welcome at our meetings. There is no cost to attend, and lunch is included.

Our state representative is Lori Jacobson, Director of the Writing and Communication Center at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. She has been attending SWCA-VA meetings since June 2016. She can be reached at

    Summer Administrators Day

    The Virginia Commonwealth University Writing Center will be hosting SWCA-VA’s annual Summer Administrators Day on June 5 from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Our theme is:

    Gen P in the Writing Center

    Generation Pandemic (“Gen P”) are the cohort of students whose high school education was significantly disrupted by COVID-19. As these students make their way to and through our campuses, what are their unique needs? And how might writing centers respond? This SWCA-VA summer directors meeting will focus on understanding the Gen P experience and developing best practices for working with Gen P students and student employees.

    Sponsored by the Virginia network of the SWCA, the event is free. Morning coffee and lunch will be provided. Membership in the SWCA (Southeastern Writing Center Association) is encouraged but not required.

    Please register for the event by Wednesday, May 29: Registration Form.
