The CCCC Writing Across the Curriculum Standing Group, established in April 2017, organizes a business meeting and a panel or workshop for the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) annually.
The purpose of the WAC SG is to:
- Discuss possible areas of need in writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines and writing across communities research within CCCC and in secondary schools, colleges, and universities in the US and abroad
- Provide a space for writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing across communities researchers to network with others in the community with complementary research projects
- Advocate for writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing across communities within CCCC and in K-12 education in the US and internationally
- Foster mentorship for graduate students, faculty, and administrators interested in WAC
- Organize special-topic CCCC panels and/or workshops on writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing across communities
