I know you have seen our Writing Center already – but for the record, our Writing Center is part of our Center for Teaching and Learning and reports through Undergraduate Studies (as do all of our CTL units). The director is a ½ time position who is also faculty in the English department (with ½ time responsibility in English) as is the Assistant Director (1/2 time in Writing Center, ½ time in English). But the Center does NOT report to English although we collaborate with them closely. The benefit is that I believe we get far more funding being in the learning center than in the English department AND we hire writing consultants across all disciplines as students write in all disciplines!

I’ve been on several campus tours of learning centers and noticed that some have writing centers associated with them and others are separate entities. I am curious to know:
· How many of you have learning centers that have writing centers?
· What does that reporting structure look like?
Thanks for all your input!
