WPA Council of Representatives

Many western universities and colleges have designated a member (or members) of their faculty to serve as a member of the WPA Council of Representatives. Members of this group provide advice and feedback to the WPA board and act as liaison on their campus for WPA. The chair of the Council is Kimberly Barchard, the current Representative-at Large. If you do not see your university or college among those listed below and you wish to become involved, please contact the WPA office. Note: Two representatives from the same campus may indicate that two academic departments are represented; it may also indicate that both a graduate and undergraduate program representative have been designated; or some other division of labor appropriate to a particular department.
