TYCA-SW Affiliations

The national TYCA builds on the grassroots structure of the seven regional two-year college English associations that have operated since the 1960s, supported by the Conference of College Composition and Communication (CCCC) of the NCTE.

This official, constitutionally recognized role ensures that two-year college interests are taken into consideration when NCTE policy is set. By working through NCTE via TYCA, two-year college English teachers will be in a position to influence educational policy and promote the work of two-year English teachers on a national scale.
