The Writing Centers Research Project (WCRP) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock conducts and supports research on writing center theory and practice and maintains a research repository of historical, empirical, and scholarly materials related to writing center studies.
The WCRP at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock maintains an archive of spoken memories and written records to preserve writing center history and facilitate scholars’ research.
The WCRP collects and archives oral interviews with historically significant writing center professionals, including those instrumental in founding early centers, in developing the National Writing Centers Association, and those who participated in other important ways in the development of writing centers. The interviews are housed at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock archives in both audio-taped and transcribed versions and are available for scholarly research.
National Writing Centers Survey
This biannual survey is designed to gather data about as many writing centers as possible, using consistent definitions for many commonly used writing center terms. The items on the survey reflect information frequently requested by writing center personnel as they seek benchmarks for their reports and for planning. The WCRP serves as the data collecting processing, and publishing control for the survey.
