50th Annual CRLA Conference

The College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) is pleased to announce its 50th Annual Conference, November 1-4, 2017 at the Westin Convention Center, Pittsburgh. Watch this site for more information as it is made available.

The 2017 CRLA conference theme— Celebrating 50 Years of Building Bridges — makes reference to Pittsburgh’s famous bridges which are the integral part of the city’s skyline. For a half-century, we, a community of reading and learning researchers and practitioners, have been building bridges across a plethora of frontiers to enhance student academic success. In our everyday work, we cross geographic, cultural, and socio-economic borders; merge disciplinary and technological boundaries; overcome age and language differences; and narrow gaps in high school, college, and career transitions. Join our festive celebration of CRLA’s 50th jubilee in Pittsburgh, a city of bridges!
