Abstract

Drawing on survey and interview data, we describe a form of bullying of writing program administrators (WPAs) that disregards disciplinary expertise and results in violations of academic freedom. We argue that writing program administration as scholarly work is subject to the same protections of academic freedom as outlined by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP).
