To support faculty and staff interested in teaching with writing, the WAC Program offers a WAC Certificate through the FDC. This certificate program will familiarize candidates with WAC theory and practice and enable them to incorporate meaningful writing assignments into their courses. Certificate recipients will receive a letter of commendation from the FDC Director for their FAR files, an electronic certificate (“badge”) for their webpage/email, and eligibility to apply for a grant of up to $1,000 for travel to a WAC- or writing-related scholarly conference.  Certificate Portfolios are due the first Friday of October.  Coming soon:  a WAC LIAISONS certificate!
