Writing Across the Curriculum: Annual Report, 1997-98.
Dillon, Timothy J.
This report provides outcomes for the 1997-98 Monroe Community College's Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program, an effort designed to help students learn to write in all disciplines with the help of writing centers staffed by trained student writing fellows. The program focuses on improving the quality of services through renewed efforts to communicate with faculty and students. Strategies employed to provide better service for a diverse student body included the Writing Center Assignment Book, written reports submitted by tutors, writing fellow volunteerism, and an Exchange Day that provided facility tours. A campus-wide survey of students and faculty was administered to determine effectiveness in the areas of service and communications. Following introductory remarks, the report includes the following sections: the year in review; a self-evaluation study from faculty and students; 1997-98 writing fellows scheduling and statistics; WAC program evaluations by students, writing fellows and faculty; and a budget report. The report also includes a discussion of schedules and a statistical analysis of the work that goes on in the Writing Center. Appended is a survey for the Institutional Project Grant: A Report on Research into Writing-Across-the-Curriculum Projects (1987). (AS)
