full name / name of organization: 
College Literacy & Learning Special Interest Group

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.

3. To act as a resource body to aid colleges in implementing or improving literacy and learning programs for their students.

4. To sponsor conferences, meetings, and publications planned to further the purposes of CLL and IRA.

We invite submissions for the upcoming International Reading Association Conference to be held in St. Louis, MO on July 17-20, 2015. Our SIG welcomes all submissions related to college-level literacy and learning, which includes, but is not limited to, issues of reading, writing, and teaching.
