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 and North Carolina Community Colleges.  For a workshop or consultation with your program please contact Director Georgia Rhoades at

Appalachian's WAC Program is distinguished by its people, but these resources have helped to distinguish our work in serving our students and Composition and WID faculty as well as NC community college students and faculty: Vertical Writing Curriculum, WAC Glossary, Writing About Guidelines, WAC Film, Community College Film, and Who Writes What.
