Directors’ Meetings


The Southern California Writing Centers Association hosts three Directors’ Meetings each year:

  • one in the fall,
  • one during the tutor conference,
  • and one later in the spring semester.


2018 Spring Directors Meeting

The 2018 Spring Directors Meeting took place on Friday, April 20, 2018 at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California from 10am-2pm.

Directions to campus + link to campus map

Meeting Location: Lower Herrick Bldg. #6

We will be meeting in Building #6 on the map: Herrick Chapel. Our meeting will take place in “lower” Herrick (the chapel part is upstairs). Lower Herrick is on the main/ground level.

Parking: Three Options

1) The closest parking lot to our meeting location is the Kemp Stadium & Rush Gym parking lot. But, this is likely to be full on a Friday morning (as staff, faculty, and students also park there). I would say try it anyway.

2) There is also free all-day parking on the streets surrounding campus (by the main entrance on Campus Road). It is quite safe to park there and usually there are plenty of spaces.

3) The main Visitor parking lot is on “upper” campus (#43 on your map: Visitor & Admission Parking). You should be able to park there on 4/20 (I don’t see any big admissions events on the calendar for that day).


We will have coffee/tea/water and light pastries when you arrive in the morning (not a full breakfast, so you may want to eat before you come if needed.

For lunch, we have planned for a taco bar that accommodates preferences for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free. Beverages: water, iced tea, lemonade (and more coffee/tea!). If you have preferences not covered here, please e-mail Julie Prebel asap so she can make sure to have that accommodation.
