College Literacy and Learning is a Special Interest Group of the International Reading Association (IRA) and meets once a year at
the International Reading Association's national convention.
The College Literacy and Learning Special Interest Group has four primary purposes:
1. To provide for an exchange of ideas and techniques with regard to teaching methods and evaluation of students' literacy
and learning in two and four-year colleges and universities, as well as the evaluation of the effectiveness of the programs, textbooks, and teaching materials.
2. To propose and encourage the adoption of certain specific qualifications for the teachers of college literacy and learning programs.
