Developing a National WAC Organization
This survey is being distributed by the co-chairs of the International Network of Writing Across the Curriculum Programs as a follow-up to a meeting at the 2016 IWAC conference focused on the future of WAC and the question of whether or not it would be beneficial to create a national organization for WAC. The purpose of this survey is to gather voices from across the field of WAC on the subject of whether or not it would be beneficial to create a national organization for WAC, and if it would be beneficial, what should the mission of the organization be? Data from this survey will be shared at a follow-up meeting on the future of WAC at the 2017 CCCC in Portland, which we hope you will attend (Saturday, March 18, 10:45-12:00, Convention Center B118).
