Writing Across the Curriculum

Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

The Writing Across the Curriculum Program works with instructors to help their students think critically and write clearly. We work as part of the overall University strategy for supporting student writing described in this report. Resources available across the University can be found here:

We work directly with instructors to help them create well-designed writing assignments and effective and efficient grading guides. In addition to one-on-one consultations with instructors, we also offer seminars and workshops for faculty on topics such as the following: Designing clear assignments; Evaluating written assignments; Commenting on student writing; Writing and critical thinking; Using informal writing assignments.

The WAC program also supports instructors in their classes by creating resources that help prepare your students to begin their writing assignment.
