"The Future is WAC" focused on the ways in which WAC programs and professionals may need to expand their efforts in response to new economic, institutional, and demographic challenges and how these initiatives can lead the way for our institutions to be self-sustaining and proactive in meeting the changing needs of our students and the communities of which we are a part.
This conference welcomed presentations, interactive workshops, and poster presentations that explored the ways in which WAC has been sustained and enhanced its presence in K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and around the globe. The conference organizers sought to include multiple voices and a variety of perspectives on WAC in its current forms.
