Multilingual Writers and Writing Centers

by Ben Rafoth
Multilingual writers—often graduate students with more content knowledge and broader cultural experience than a monolingual tuto—unbalance the typical tutor/client relationship and pose a unique challenge for the writing center.

AAUP to Serve in Advisory Capacity on Mellon-funded Study of Monograph Costs:
A Task Force of AAUP Board and staff members including UPC director Darrin Pratt, under the aegis of a Mellon-funded planning grant, worked with ITHAKA's Nancy Maron to think through and craft a grant proposal for the full project last year. Mellon has announced the award of that grant. 20 presses, representing the full demographic diversity of university presses, will participate in the study. The information that should result will be invaluable in ongoing conversations on the future of UP work, and indeed for each member's own internal benchmarking and management.
