Writing Across the Curriculum

Connect with IUP Writing Across the Curriculum on Social Media

Teach, Write, Teach Writing

The Writing Across the Curriculum program provides support for faculty universitywide in implementing writing into their courses. The program aims to create and sustain a community of writers at IUP.

If you have questions about WAC, please contact Bryna Siegel Finer at brynasf@iup.edu.

The Writing Across the Curriculum initiative is in its beginning stages of development. In Fall 2012, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences committed to creating a universitywide initiative with four main agendas:

  • Provide faculty development for those teaching writing-intensive courses, including workshops and training for those interested in proposing writing-intensive courses, and support for all faculty across the university in implementing writing assignments into their courses
  • Provide support and consultation to the university-wide Liberal Studies Committee as needed in revising writing-intensive course requirements
  • Create a research agenda for studying and understanding the effectiveness of how writing is taught and learned in the university curriculum; continually collect data from students and faculty on their perceptions of the how writing is taught and learned at IUP
  • Assist faculty in creating individual research projects on how writing is taught and learned in their own classrooms
  • Assist faculty in completing documentation for writing-intensive faculty and course designations
  • Connect departments and/or colleges with consultants from professional settings or other universities who are experts in writing in specific fields and can come to IUP to provide workshops, seminars, and meet with faculty to provide resources on the teaching of writing
  • Foster a community of writers through various modes and media (such as contests, readings, workshops, newsletters, etc.) and relationships (with the Writing Center, the IUP Libraries, and various departments across campus)
