12/4/18: AWAC Updates

The new professional organization, the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum (AWAC), will serve as an umbrella to bring together all groups in WAC.

WAC-GO will now be a committee on AWAC. While AWAC will require an annual membership fee of graduate students ($10 annually), your membership to WAC-GO will remain the same and not require any payment. You will only have to pay if you want to serve on the WAC-GO Committee or one of the other AWAC committees. In AWAC, there are multiple committees in addition to WAC-GO which you can get plugged into. In other words, we will still be offering all of our resources to WAC-GO members for free!

This is an exciting time for WAC and we think the creation of AWAC will allow even more graduate students to serve in leadership positions and gain experience in the field!
