This year’s conference theme was "Looking Back and Looking Ahead: The Writing Center's Past, Present, and Future."

Dr. Gamie and her team gave a panel presentation titled, “Re-Envisioning Future Writing Centers Sites and Methods” which focused on re-envisioning writing center practices and services, how writing center practitioners can empower minority students to challenge and resist the racist linguistic, ideological, and socio-economic systems that disenfranchise them or affirm their marginality.
