” The Ups and Downs of the Interdisciplinary Writing Center of the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, Metropolitan Campus” By Matilde García-Arroyo and Hilda E.Quintana
This profile describes the eventful history over twenty-five years of the Interdisciplinary Writing Center of the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico. The Center, the first in Puerto Rico and committed to developing students’ writing in both Spanish and English, flourished for several years, closed, then re-opened in 2008 to a new mandate. The authors analyze persistent attitudinal challenges the Center continues to face, even as it has succeeded in its mission of reaching students across disciplines.
