program was developed to encourage faculty to use writing as a learning
tool. The WAC program at MCCC views learning as a process and writing
as a unique and important part of that process. The WAC program is committed
to the idea that all students, regardless of the academic discipline they
are pursuing, can benefit from writing.
faculty nominate students for their writing ability and their willingness
to work with people. Nominees are screened and interviewed extensively
before becoming writing fellows. Writing fellows are then assigned to
individual courses. They help students by reading first drafts of writing
assignments and conferencing students to discuss methods of improvement.
fellows are trained to work with a variety of abilities, the WAC program
is available to all students regardless of their writing ability. Students
who seek help from the Writing Center range from
at-risk students to the best writers at MCCC. Visit their Web site.
