Presenters will illustrate how they used a wider range of elements, such as social media platforms and marketing strategies, to increase interest in the Center for Writing. Additionally, presenters will share how these new initiatives help them to consider what the Center is and is not doing, what current practices are vital to the Center’s mission, and what possible futures the tutors can envision for the Center.
