Avree Ito-Fujita, a University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa English PhD candidate, has been awarded the 2017 International Writing Centers Association (IWCA) President’s Future Leaders Scholarship. She is one of only four student leaders nationwide who received the award and this is her second IWCA award.

Ito-Fujita presented “Tutors Between Writing Centers: Forming Online and F2F Identities” at the IWCA Annual Conference in Chicago in November. Her presentation explored how UH Mānoa’s Writing Center became the training ground for another campus-based writing center program, the Online Learning Academy’s community-based writing center, and how writing center tutors mitigate online and face-to-face identities in order to adapt to community needs.
