The Writing in the Disciplines and Across the Curriculum and Communities (WID/AC) program at CCBC recognizes that globalization and recent advances in technology increase the demand for more proficient writing and communication skills in all academic disciplines, vocational programs, and the workplace.
Writing, critical thinking, and lifelong learning are inextricably linked, complex processes and the WID/AC program aims to provide a forum where the college unites to support one another by exchanging pedagogical strategies and promoting practices which emphasize both the value of writing to learn and the use of writing as an essential teaching tool. WID/AC reinforces the College’s mission statement to serve our diverse community by empowering and liberating student voices and increasing their efficacy across borders, boundaries, and worlds.
