Writing Across the Curriculum Program
Mission and Goals
Central to the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)
program, is the mission to instill in our students the experience of writing as
an opportunity to discover and achieve their full potential as business
scholars. The WAC program will ride on
the ideal of this model; students will learn-to
write in the ASB program and then move to a model of writing-to-learn in the Bachelors programs with the expertise and
opportunity of having faculty Writing Coaches attend classes and coach students
individually. To achieve this goal, students will be given frequent
opportunities to develop and deepen their understanding of how to write. In
doing so, they think more critically and creatively, engage more deeply in
their learning, and are better able to transfer what they have learned from
course-to-course, context-to-context. As
our students experience writing throughout their writing courses positively, as
an opportunity for communication, they will develop the confidence and critical
skills needed to succeed in our writing intensive program, in their workplace,
and their communities.
