Campus and Community Outreach

Campus and community outreach represents a core value of the WA Program: to develop collaborative thinking in scholastic settings. Since 1986, Writing Associates have hosted events and participated in community service projects aimed at fostering conversation on writing and rhetoric. These include:

  • On-campus speakers
  • Student/faculty dialogues
  • Student workshops
  • Local and global write-in events
  • Faculty panels
  • Partnerships with various community groups and organizations

In addition, outreach extends to Swarthmore alumni through:

We are always investigating new ways to get involved in community outreach. If you have any suggestions for future partnerships, please contact Coordinator team, Emily Ferrari, Cindy Lim, or Sophie Moody
