That's WAC!

Writing Across the Curriculum offers support for faculty teaching writing and using writing as a learning tool at all levels of education at Appalachian. Housed in University College, WAC works closely with General Education, the Composition and Rhetoric Program, the Writing Center, and the First Year Seminar Program to offer consultations in course and assignment design and response and evaluation to writing in all classrooms. We also offer writing workshops and consultations with all departments and programs across campus as well as with other schools.  For a workshop or consultation with your program please contact Director Georgia Rhoades at
