Since 1938, the College English Association has been a vibrant, growing professional organization of scholar-teachers who regard teaching college students, undergraduate and graduate, as the proper focus of the profession.

Our members represent a broad range of interests traditionally gathered under English studies, including literature, composition, popular culture, women's studies, minority studies, creative writing, film studies, technical communication, speech, and ESL.

CEA's diverse membership connects the various segments of the profession: large and small institutions, state and private schools, liberal arts colleges and technical institutions, community colleges and universities.
