WAC Outreach and Partnerships
In the most recent issue of _The WAC Journal,_ Joan Mullin and Susan Schorn
remind us, “When successful WAC workshops, course development protocols,
newsletters, and all other typical program elements are in place or have
run their course, WAC directors and faculty often need to create other
strategies to sustain or reinvigorate participation, interest, and
engagement.” What innovative strategies are you using to rekindle faculty,
student, and/or administrative involvement in WAC?

Presentations exploring outreach (in humanities and social and natural
sciences, to librarians or professional staff), curricular development,
emphases on WAC as local (e.g., grounded in institution, mission), and
connections or partnerships forged between WAC and other campus programs
(first-year seminars, core curriculum/general education, service learning,
academic support, information literacy, study abroad, faculty development)
especially welcome.

Abstracts of 300-500 words due via email by March 31, 2008, to:
Melanie Brown, WAC Director
Assistant Professor of English
St. Norbert College
De Pere, WI 54115
