WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION Series Editors: Susan H. McLeod and Margot Soven WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE offers a comprehensive study of the administration of writing programs at public, two-year institutions. Author Heather Ostman describes the community college's diverse students, who shape its mission with their changing needs and demographics. A history of the community college places the institution within the broader context of American higher education and is followed by practical information about the day-to-day work of the WPA at the two-year college. WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE also addresses current issues and concerns faced by WPAs and writing instructors, including the politics of and future for composition at community colleges. Writing Program Administration and the Community College will deepen the understanding of composition and WPA work at this institution for all WPAs-at community colleges and four-year institutions, composition instructors, college administrators, and graduate students pursuing careers in the field. HEATHER OSTMAN is an assistant professor and the assistant chair of the SUNY Westchester Community College English Department, where she teaches courses in writing and literature. Before joining Westchester, she served as the writing program coordinator at the Metropolitan Manhattan campus of the State University of New York's Empire State College. Her work has appeared in essay collections and in journals such as College Composition and Communication, Women's Studies, Prose Studies, Philological Quarterly, and New Writing. She is the editor of Kate Chopin in the Twenty-First Century: New Critical Essays (2008) and serves as the President of the Kate Chopin International Society. She is also the recipient of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities and the Westchester Community College Foundation Faculty Excellence Award in Scholarship. In 2012, she and her colleague Frank Madden were awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant for Two-Year Colleges to establish and co-direct the SUNY Westchester Community College Humanities Institute, which provides curricula, events, and pedagogical training in the humanities with an emphasis on the immigrant experience in the United States.

While local conditions remain at the forefront of writing program administration, transnational activities are slowly and thoroughly shifting the questions we ask about writing curricula, the space and place in which writing happens, and the cultural and linguistic issues at the heart of the relationships forged in literacy work. Transnational Writing Program Administration challenges taken-for-granted assumptions regarding program identity, curriculum and pedagogical effectiveness, logistics and quality assurance, faculty and student demographics, innovative partnerships and research, and the infrastructure needed to support writing instruction in higher education. Well-known scholars and new voices in the field extend the theoretical underpinnings of writing program administration to consider programs, activities, and institutions involving students and faculty from two or more countries working together and highlight the situated practices of such efforts. The collection brings translingual graduate students at the forefront of writing studies together with established administrators, teachers, and researchers and intends to enrich the efforts of WPAs by examining the practices and theories that impact our ability to conceive of writing program administration as transnational. This collection will enable writing program administrators to take the emerging locations of writing instruction seriously, to address the role of language difference in writing, and to engage critically with the key notions and approaches to writing program administration that reveal its transnationality.

The role of the writing program administrator is one of diverse activities and challenges, and preparation for the position has traditionally come through performing the job itself. As a result, uninitiated WPAs often find themselves struggling to manage the various requirements and demands of the position, and even experienced WPAs often encounter situations on which they need advice. The Writing Program Administrator's Resource has been developed to address the needs of all WPAs, regardless of background or experience. It provides practical, applicable tools to effectively address the differing and sometimes competing roles in which WPAs find themselves. Readers will find an invaluable collection of articles in this volume, addressing fundamental practices and issues encountered by WPAs in their workplace settings and focusing on the hows and whys of writing program administration. With formal preparation and training only now beginning to catch up to the very real needs of the WPA, this volume offers guidance and support from authoritative and experienced sources--educators who have established the definitions and standards of the position; who have run into obstacles and surmounted them; and who have not just survived but thrived in their roles as WPAs. Editors Stuart C. Brown and Theresa Enos contribute their own experience and bring together the voices of their colleagues to delineate the intellectual scope and practices of writing program administration as an emerging discipline. Established and esteemed leaders in the field offer insights, advice, and plans of action for the myriad scenarios encountered in the position, encouraging WPAs and helping them to realize that they often know more than they think they do. This resource is required reading for the new WPA, and an essential reference for all who serve in the WPA role. As a guidebook for WPAs, it is destined to become a fixture on the desk of every educator involved with or interested in administrating writing programs, writing centers, and writing-across-the-curriculum efforts.
