Writing Across the Curriculum: Discipline-Specific Resources: Home

This guide was created to provide students with discipline-specific writing resources.


In this guide you will find resources catered towards popular majors on the Kent Columbiana campuses (Salem and East Liverpool). These resources are based in WAC, or Writing Across the Curriculum, and are here to help you learn how to write within your specific discipline.

What is WAC/WID?

"Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) recognizes and supports the use of writing in any and every way and in every and any course offered at a learning institution. A WAC Program in its simplest term is any organized, recognized, and sustained effort--no matter how modest in people, resources, and funding--to help faculty in any and every course use writing more deliberately and more often." - WAC Clearinghouse
