About Writing Across the Curriculum at City Tech

Logo of WAC at City Tech

Writing Across the Curriculum is a national movement in higher education, designed to give college students the chance to develop reading, writing, communication and critical thinking skills in all of their courses. CUNY established its university-wide writing across the curriculum program in 1999.

Since the inception of City Tech’s WAC program, WAC team has sought to assist instructors in developing and teaching writing-intensive courses in their disciplines. Through the work of City Tech’s graduate WAC fellows, the program trains and certifies instructors to teach writing-intensive courses. Fellows also serve as consultants to certified instructors teaching these courses. In addition, the WAC program sponsors fellow and WAC coordinator-led workshops open to all students, and supports specialized programs as they attempt to improve student writing and communication skills.
