Writing Centers and Writing across the Curriculum Programs: Building Interdisciplinary Partnerships

Synopsis

Writing Centers have traditionally been viewed as marginalized facilities within their institutions. This book challenges that view by examining the evolving theoretical, practical, and institutional relationships between Writing Centers and Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Programs at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Based on their experiences at particular institutions, expert contributors present a variety of approaches for establishing and developing effective partnerships between Writing Centers and WAC Programs. These partnerships have been given relatively little consideration in the larger field of composition and rhetoric. By deepening our knowledge of the merging of these two specialized areas of scholarship, the volume sets the foundation for more advanced research. The contributors present different perspectives that accurately portray the true diversity of Writing Center/WAC partnerships and their compatibility with larger institutional missions.
