WAC-Writing Across the Curriculum

Writing Across the Curriculum


We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual WAC Essay Awards! Current SCC students may enter any essay written for an SCC class during this past year (Summer 2013, Fall 2013, and Spring 2014). Winners will be chosen in two categories: Research Essays and Non-Research Essays. Cash prizes go to the top three in each category! See below for an entry form and complete rules.

At Southwestern Community College, we are dedicated to creating a culture of writing.  We are committed to giving our students varied opportunities to improve their writing skills within their chosen disciplines, encouraging them to think more critically. We do this through our Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program.  

Established in 2006, the WAC program works on two levels:  the training and support of faculty members from a broad range of disciplines and the fostering of student writing abilities through in-class workshops.  The WAC program also works closely with other student support mechanisms on campus – the Learning Assistance Center, Student Support Services, and the Holt Library.
