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 creates a place on the schedule through a sponsored panel or workshop, as well as an annual business meeting. 

The CCCC WAC SG is currently  seeking members and proposals for the 2019 CCCC sponsored panel. Below, we share the purpose of this group, provide links to the bylaws and membership, present the call for proposals, and list current and past officers. 

Purpose

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:

  • Discuss possible areas of need in writing across the curriculum, writing in the discipline and writing across communities research within CCCC and in secondary schools, colleges, and universities in the US and abroad
  • Provide a space for writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and  writing across communities researchers to network with others in the community with complementary research projects
  • Advocate for writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing  across communities within CCCC and in K-12 education in the US and internationally
  • Foster mentorship for graduate students, faculty, and administrators interested in  WAC
  • Organize special-topic CCCC panels on writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing across communities
