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.
