Overview: 

Mentoring Committee invites all AWAC members to a virtual roundtable featuring the winners of the 2023 WAC Exemplary Program Awards. The Exemplary WAC Program Awards series recognizes the extraordinary achievements of WAC directors and/or administrative teams to establish, maintain, and sustain programs that foster and facilitate exemplary engagement with writing across the curriculum at their institution, as well as institutional commitments to support these achievements. We are honored to host our winners for a roundtable presentation and a Q&A.

Sara Glennon and John Kipp of Landmark College: Writing Across the Curriculum at Landmark College has emerged as a program deeply rooted in the institution it serves. Not only is WAC@LC building better learning experiences for Landmark College students, it is developing new knowledges and best practices regarding neurodivergent student writers. Of specific note has been the cultural uptake of the WAC@LC program’s student-centered and theoretically grounded work.

Kimberly Gunter of Fairfield University: Fairfield has brought the Core Writing Program into the heart of best practices and theoretical framing within the field of Writing Studies. They have succeeded in a very difficult transition from an outdated model of composition based in literature into one that serves students across the curriculum and builds a culture of writing across diverse faculty interests and expertise. WAC programming has significantly impacted the campus writing culture and transformed into a vertical and writing across the curriculum model. The program offers an exemplary model for how to integrate threshold concepts of writing studies in vertical WAC programs.

Pamela Flash of University of Minnesota: The University of Minnesota’s 35-year-old WAC Program supports writing instruction across and within academic disciplines and institutional contexts. Although the program began as a part-time effort initiated to support an ambitious writing-intensive course requirement, it has steadily expanded and evolved. Now, with fiscal support from Minnesota’s central administration, the program offers a robust menu of interdisciplinary programming (the Teaching with Writing Program) and a comprehensively structured system of departmental support (the Writing-Enriched Curriculum Program). By hosting conferences and institutes, publishing findings, and offering institutional consultations, Minnesota’s WAC program has also supported other WAC professionals embarking on similar work, showcasing their impact not only on their own campus but to our broader WAC community.
