What Is WAC?

Writing Across the Curriculum means Shared Responsibility:

WRITING—Some writing in every course is better than a lot in a few courses and none in most.
APPROPRIATENESS—If teachers design assignments appropriate to the learning objectives in their specific courses and disciplines, then students will learn versatility as writers, and teachers will be more comfortable responding to the writing.
COMMUNITY—Where all teachers in all courses and disciplines assign some appropriate writing, a community of writers grows. Students come to see writing as a natural form of communication, and so their comfort and confidence increase (Christopher Thaiss).
