SponsorsThe organizers of the 25th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf acknowledge with deep gratitude our sponsors and supporters:
Bloomsburg University Office of the President: David L. Soltz, Ph.D., became Bloomsburg University’s 18th president in January 2008, and has since concentrated on building programs and infrastructure for today’s students and those who will follow. The university’s strategic plan, Impact 2015: Building on the Past, Leading for the Future, was developed under his leadership and introduced in fall 2010. A new general education model that is currently in the implementation stage is designed to enhance learning opportunities for all students and to prepare them for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.
Bloomsburg University Office of the Provost / Office of Academic Affairs: Ira Blake, Ph.D., Bloomsburg University’s Senior Vice President and Provost, works closely with the university president, distinguished faculty, dedicated administrators, and other campus leaders to ensure that Bloomsburg remains a premier public comprehensive university, recognized as a center of thinking, learning and academic excellence.
Bloomsburg University Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs: Dione Somerville, Ph.D., joined the BU community in 2011. As Vice President of Student Affairs, she provides strong leadership for all activities related to student life, including housing, dining, transportation, student activities, community involvement, recreation, health, wellness, spirituality, and career and social development.

The International Virginia Woolf Society is devoted to encouraging and facilitating the scholarly study of, critical attention to, and general interest in, the work and career of Virginia Woolf, and to facilitate ways in which all people interested in her writings–scholars, critics, teachers, students, and common readers–may learn from one another, meet together, contact each other, and help one another.
The Degenstein Foundation was created to improve the quality of life and to provide financial support to organizations with clear statements of purpose, well defined programs, and competent leadership. Thanks to the generosity of Charles B. Degenstein, the residents of central Pennsylvania will benefit forever.
