About TYCA


Who are we?
National TYCA (Two-Year College English Association) is an organization under the umbrella of the NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) specifically designed for two-year college English teachers. Within National TYCA, there are seven regional TYCA organizations.  TYCA-NE represents and serves the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, D.C., as well as New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec.

What is our purpose?
TYCA Northeast
works to foster the intellectual and pedagogical growth of English teachers and administrators in the two-year colleges throughout the northeast region. Our specific goals include conducting our annual conference in the fall and publishing a newsletter, which features members’ articles, fiction, and poetry.

How are we organized?
The TYCA-NE Regional Executive Committee is the governing board of TYCA-NE.  View the REC Directory to see who is on the committee.  Learn about the different positions on the committee on the FAQ page.
