Writing Across the Curriculum

The Southern Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program and the Writing Center are directed by Elizabeth Kalbfleisch, Ph.D. WAC is also overseen by the Writing Across the Curriculum Committee (WACC). Members of WACC are appointed jointly by the chair of the Undergraduate Curriculum Forum (UCF) and the vice president for Academic Affairs.

The purpose of WAC is to create a curricular structure and educational environment in which writing can be encountered as a tool of discovery across the curriculum for both faculty and students who participate in writing-intensive courses. By providing resources such as workshops for faculty on using effective writing techniques and offering tutoring and writing workshops for students, the program strives to increase the successful participation of everyone involved in writing-intensive courses.
