The Awards Committee of the Two-Year College English Association (TYCA) of the National Council of the Teachers of English (NCTE) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Diana Hacker TYCA Awards for Outstanding Programs in English for Two-Year Colleges and Teachers. The Chattanooga State Community College Humanities Department’s “Writers@Work” series has been selected as the exemplary program in the category of Enhancing Literature and Cultural Arts. Congratulations to Chattanooga State and its Humanities Department faculty for their creative response to the challenges of educating two-year college students and for demonstrating professionalism in the commitment to educating diverse student populations.
TYCA unites teachers committed to the teaching and study of English in the two-year college, to advancing the profession, and providing a national voice for the two-year college in postsecondary education.
The Chattanooga State Foundation has helped fund the Humanities Department’s Writers@Work program for three years, and we are proud to see this initiative receive such a distinction. You’ll be hearing more about the impact of our Writers@Work initiative on the ChattState Stat next month.
