Writing Across the Curriculum

Since its founding in 1984, Salisbury University’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program has been committed to assisting our students to improve their writing via assignments in every academic course. In following guidance from the national Writing Across the Curriculum initiative, we share the philosophy that writing should happen across the academic community and throughout a student’s educational experiences.


The links in the menu present a variety of resources, tools, and suggestions for engaging students in various types of writing processes. Here you will find information and ideas for many types of writing projects - from assignment design, to peer review ideas, and providing feedback. These links provide just a snapshot - for more please complete this form to request access to the WAC MyClasses faculty page.

If you’re a student looking for writing support and resources, please visit the University Writing Center’s page.
