Call for WAC Program Archives and Coronavirus Stories

The WAC Clearinghouse invites submissions to two archival collections:

1. WAC Program Archives. Archival materials might include administrative documents, proposals, curricula, correspondences, manuals, reports, professional development resources, etc. The WAC Clearinghouse can host digital archives or provide links to collections held at hosting institutions. 

2. Coronavirus Stories Archive. Are your students writing about their experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic this spring? The WAC Clearinghouse invites class or program-wide submissions to the Coronavirus Stories Archive. Instructors prepare an introduction, and students—anonymously or otherwise—have the opportunity to contribute their accounts to a growing public database of pandemic stories.

Details on how to submit to both archives are at https://wac.colostate.edu/resources, with information about the WAC Program Archives found in the WAC Resources section and the Coronavirus Stories Archive found in the General Resources section.
