About

WAC is housed in University College and works with the Composition Program in English and the University Writing Center 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.  Please see below for 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. 

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

The WAC Program offers individual and program consultations to support writing instruction.  If you would like to discuss possibilities for your course development or support or for your program, please contact Georgia at rhoadesgd@appstate.edu.  We can offer workshops designed for program needs, including writing assignment design, handling the paper load, plagiarism, and/or editing concerns, and specific lessons in writing project support.
