Writing Across the Curriculum
What Is Writing Across The Curriculum?
Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC for short) is a university-wide program that prepares our students to think about writing as skill that can be applied across all subjects and majors.
Here at York College, WAC provides resources to help integrate writing into the curriculum in every department and academic program by expanding the role of writing in the General Education curriculum, as well as developing Writing Intensive courses that are required for graduation.
Who Is the WAC Program?
WAC at York College is supported by a faculty committee representing different academic programs at York College, as well as the CUNY Graduate Center WAC Fellows, advanced graduate students from a wide array of disciplines who develop and implement WAC activities and initiatives at York.
Prof. George Lam serves as the WAC coordinator for Writing Intensive courses and the chair of the Writing Intensive Advisory Committee, and Prof. Matt Garley serves as the WAC Coordinator for Writing Fellows.
