At Union College, we believe that writing is a central component of intellectual inquiry across the liberal arts, sciences, and engineering disciplines. The Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program supports a diverse culture of writing that includes a variety of styles, genres, and contexts. Our program is committed to the development of student writers through writing-rich coursework within and across the disciplines.
The Writing Board oversees WAC designated courses, approving and reviewing course syllabi. We support best practices in the teaching and learning of writing through faculty development workshops, departmental assessment workshops, and collaboration with The Writing Center, which promotes excellence in student writing and thinking in the liberal arts tradition.
