The grand opening was near Halloween, and the deans, the vice provost, the provost, and the president of Stanford all attended: Happy Anniversary, Hume Center, and greetings to all those who work to support writing centers across this country and far beyond.
We were tucked away into a basement naturallyand while the space was really nice completely renovatedstudents had a hard time finding us. As always, I am inspired and moved by the strength and commitment and brilliance of college students, who make me glad and grateful, every single day, that I have been able to spend my life among them.
After the panel, we all trooped across the street to the Center itself, where a grand buffet and anniversary cake were waiting, along with a program: To celebrate the occasion, Interim Director Sarah Pit tock and her Hume Center team organized a panel about the Center, chaired by Wendy Goldberg along with John Tinker, whom we miss every day, Wendy was first Co-Director of the Center and featuring talks by people involved in the Center, past and present.
Best of all, Zandra Jordan, who is joining Stanford this fall as Director of the Hume Center, was on hand for the occasion so that we all got to spend a bit of time with her and soak up some of her energy. I left campus positively glowing with energy and excitement and a sense of hope, which is in short supply in these dark days of the Trump debacle.
Still, with all of us working to get the word out, we conducted only about tutorials during the remaining terms of that year. Now out of the basement, the Center has its own building on the campus quad: We also heard from former and current tutors, some of whom wrote in with special greetings and reminiscences.
I said a few words and told the audience, as I have told many others, that building the Center was the most fun and exciting thing I was able to do in my very long career.With an expanded mission and a new Main Quadrangle location, the Hume Center is exploring ways to integrate support for writing and speaking.
