University Writing Program

Writing Across the Curriculum
University Writing Center

The mission of the University Writing Program is to provide support for writers and instructors of writing in order to prepare students for academic and professional success. The UWP includes the 

  • University Writing Center: The UWC is a peer tutoring center open and available to students, faculty, and staff to work with trained undergraduate and graduate writing consultants on writing at any stage of the writing process.
  • Writing Across the Curriculum: WAC is a program that supports the philosophy that writing should happen across the disciplines and throughout a student's undergraduate education, values writing as a method of learning, acknowledges the difference in writing conventions across the disciplines, and believes that students can best learn to write in their areas by practicing discipline-specific writing conventions.
  • Writing-intensive course support: Students are required to complete ECU's WI course requirement before they graduate from the university.

Proposed WAC Program Revisions

Having hosted two faculty forums on April 11 and 12, 2013, the WAC Committee has made available a webpage of resources regarding proposed changes to the Writing Intensive program at ECU.  The following link provides faculty a set of resources to explore in order to provide feedback to the WAC Committee. Please provide feedback no later than Noon, April 26, 2013.
