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 2023, consider developing a panel for the WAC SG Sponsored Panel. We are interested in innovative proposals that push forward the scholarship of WAC while also connecting to the conference theme. If you would like your proposal to be considered for the 2023 WAC SG Sponsored Panel, email your proposal to Lee Nickoson (email@example.com) by mid-April (check back for the deadline).
In fall 2022, the CCCC WAC SG will be seeking 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.
