Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

The Office of Undergraduate Studies convenes WAC coordinators from across the University.  WAC/ WID at CUNY began with the 1999 Board Resolution endorsing the centrality of writing to a university education and calling for the integration of writing across the curriculum. The Board Resolution also established the CUNY Writing Fellows program, which trains CUNY doctoral students to support efforts to improve writing at the campuses.  Annually, six Writing Fellows are assigned to each of the undergraduate campuses (except for the Guttman Community College which is assigned one Fellow); two are assigned to the CUNY School for Professional Studies; and three to the CUNY Law School.
