Our mission is to ensure that Curry College supports its students in the reading, writing, and critical thinking practices they will need for success in their careers, communities, and personal lives. Our WAC program strives to:

  • Provide evidence-based teaching strategies rooted in current research;
  • Engage faculty from all Departments and Programs in formal workshops, individual consultations, and informal “brown bag” lunches;
  • Develop and implement disciplinary-specific workshops for Departments and classrooms;
  • Help the faculty design and implement reading and writing enhanced courses (RWEs);
  • Create a respectful and thoughtful collegiate atmosphere to discuss issues of reading and writing;
  • And contribute to the larger WAC/WID and SoTL national community.

We accomplish these goals by offering an innovative Faculty Writing Fellows program, workshops on pedagogy and disciplinary-specific writing practices, one-on-one consultations, and by assisting faculty interested in developing advanced, writing-based courses.
