Another great Cs for CRDM

We’re all back from St. Louis and recovered from a great conference week. This year’s Conference on College Composition and Communication was extra special because our very own Dr. Chris Anson was the program chair. He worked tirelessly for the last 12+ months putting together a great four days of panels, workshops, events, and more for more than 3,500 writing instructors from across the United States and around the world. Thanks for all your hard work, Dr. Anson!

As usual, CRDM students made a stellar showing at the conference, and we want to acknowledge everyone from the program who participated in this year’s Cs.
