Support for the 2018 Praxis Conference was provided by contributions from: the UW College of Arts & Sciences Writing Program, the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL), the English Department Expository Writing Program (EWP), the American Ethnic Studies Department (AES), the Comparative History of Ideas Department (CHID), the Language Learning Center (LLC) and the Kollar Gift for Literacy fund.  These programs are invested in writing or the conference theme, and their support helps keep the Praxis Conference free and accessible to a wide range of scholars at the university K-12 settings, and community partners.

A special thank you to the Burke Museum for providing resources on their Waterlines Project.  To continue conversations about education across language and culture, please check the LLC's free Heritage Language Symposium event on Saturday, February 10th.
