WAC Structure and Services

dorothyallison pictureWAC is housed in University College and works with the Composition Program in English and the University Writing Program to support writing at Appalachian.  Georgia Rhoades directs the program and Sherry Alusow Hart is the Director of Assessment.  Sheryl Mohn is the WAC program associate.  WAC consultants offer support to the program by advising faculty in teaching writing.  They also frequently present at conferences and are involved in various areas of WAC scholarship.  Click here to see a listing of their scholarship.

Each year WAC works with WID consultants, who are a group of faculty in the disciplines who advice the program. WAC pays these faculty a stipend.

The WAC Committee advises the program and recommends course proposals to the General Education Council.
