The CCCC Writing Across the Curriculum Standing Group (WAC SG) was established in April 2017. It was proposed by the board of the International Network of Writing Across the Curriculum Programs (INWAC), which had led Special Interest Group meetings at CCCC for over thirty years. The shift to a WAC SG formalizes the relationship with CCCC, creates a rotating elected leadership, and a place on the schedule through a sponsored panel or workshop, as well as an annual business meeting.
Below, we share the purpose of this group, provide links to the bylaws and membership, and list current and past officers.
The WAC SG was established in April 2017 and held its first business meeting and sponsored panel at CCCC 2018. The purpose of the WAC SG is to:
By becoming a member of the WAC SG, you become eligible to vote for the WAC SG incoming chair as well as stand for election. All are welcome: WAC directors, instructors, researchers, and graduate students. Standing group members must be current CCCC members. To become a WAC SG member, complete this brief form.
As you plan for CCCC 2024, consider attending the WAC SG Sponsored Panel, "Writing Abundance Across the Curriculum" (see details on the sidebar). And as you look forward to the next CCCC, consider submitting a proposal for the WAC SC panel. We are interested in innovative proposals that push forward the scholarship of WAC while also connecting to the conference theme. Proposal details for the CCCC 2025 WAC SG Sponsored Panel will be shared shortly after the 2024 CCCC in Spokane.
Each fall, the CCCC WAC SG seeks nominations for Incoming Chair. The Incoming Chair assists the Chair and Outgoing Chair in selecting a sponsored panel, planning the business meeting, and planning other WAC SG activities. This is a three-year commitment, as the Incoming Chair rotates to the Chair and Outgoing Chair positions. Any CCCC WAC SG member is eligible to be nominated for Incoming Chair. Watch for the call for nominations in early fall.
