On behalf of the Master's Degree Consortium of Writing Studies Specialists, I am writing to announce that the initial report on the 2012 Survey of Programs is available for download at the consortium web site: http://www.mdcwss.com/2013/02/report-on-the-2012-survey-of-programs/. Please consider sharing this announcement or the report itself with others who you think should know about it. The report offers a concise overview of the 27-question survey completed by 82 programs affiliated with the consortium from March-August 2012.
We look forward to discussing the survey and the report in Las Vegas next month. The survey results will figure prominently on the agenda at the Master's Consortium annual meeting, Wednesday, March 13, 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Riviera Hotel, Royale Pavilion 4, First Floor. They will also be the focus of panel L.18 (Sat., 3/16, 9:30 a.m., Riviera, Grand Ballroom E), "Articulating the Infrastructure of the Field: Perspectives on the 2012 Survey of the Master’s Degree Consortium of Writing Studies Specialists," which includes representatives from the Two-Year College Association (TYCA), the Association of Undergraduate Rhetoric and Writing Studies Majors, and the Consortium of Doctoral Programs in Rhetoric and Composition. We hope many of you who are invested in the work of MA/MS programs will have time to attend one or both of these events. --signed, MA Consortium Leadership
