The Lindsay J. Cropper Center for Creative Writing was established in 2004 by Barrie and Dorothy Cropper in memory of their daughter Lindsay, an alumna of USD, English major, and aspiring writer. The purpose of the center is to foster the appreciation and practice of creative writing at the University of San Diego by hosting an annual writers series, sponsoring writing workshops, and granting student awards for creative writing.
