The Southern Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program and the Writing Center are
directed by Marie McDaniel, Ph.D. The writing program at SCSU is also overseen by the Writing Across the Curriculum
Committee (WACC). The WACC is comprised of nine voting members elected through the
Faculty Senate election process and several non-voting ex-officio members.
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.
