About WAC

At the City University of New York (CUNY), the Writing Across the Curriculum Program was established in 1999 through a Board of Trustees resolution, “to ensure that writing instruction is regarded as a common responsibility and that the development of writing proficiency becomes a focus of the entire undergraduate curriculum.” KCC’s WAC Program consists of three distinct but interrelated components:

  • Writing intensive courses: KCC offers some 100 writing intensive sections every Fall and Spring semester and students are required to take at least one before graduating. See WAC for Students for more information.
  • Faculty certification program: At KCC we don’t designate courses as writing intensive; we certify individual faculty members from all departments to teach in our writing intensive program. See WAC for Faculty for more information.
  • The Writing Fellow program: Every fall KCC welcomes a group of CUNY PhD candidates to our campus to serve in a variety of capacities within the WAC Program. See WAC for Writing Fellows for more information.
