AWAC is excited to announce a special, in-person WAC Fall Institute in Albuquerque, NM, from October 20 – 23, 2021. See the “Save the Date” here:


The Institute’s primary goal is to assist new and prospective leaders of WAC/WID or similar initiatives in the US and internationally at planning and developing their programs. The Institute also supports experienced directors who face new challenges or wish to expand, update, or revitalize their programs. The Institute agenda will include workshops on understanding, planning, developing, and leading WAC/WID programs, as well as small group meetings that provide mentoring and networking opportunities.

Chris Anson (North Carolina State University) and Cristyn Elder (University of New Mexico) will be the lead facilitators, with others announced soon. Registration will be capped at 30 participants.

While budget numbers are still in flux, we expect the registration PLUS hotel for this event will total between $800 and $900 dollars per participant. This price includes participation in the three-day institute; daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks/coffee; and three hotel nights. Wednesday evening is an optional reception, and Saturday will be a half-day with options for one-on-one consultations in the afternoon.

Important Dates

All details, including prices and the agenda, will be confirmed by July 1.
Registration will open on August 8. 
Refunds or adjustments will not be possible after September 8.
The Institute will kick off the evening of October 20.

After this special Fall 2021 Institute, we plan now to hold the Institute every summer, coinciding with the IWAC Conference biennially and as a freestanding event at different locations in the IWAC off-years.
