Writing-Intensive Course Committee (WICC)


The Writing-Intensive Course Committee is responsible for overseeing the writing-intensive course program. The WICC reviews and approves all proposals for writing-intensive courses; drafts policies for the w-course program, including the w-course guidelines; and assesses the w-course program.

The Committee is comprised of eight faculty members from across the schools and colleges. These faculty serve three-year terms. The Committee also includes three ex-officio members: a representative from the GenEd program, a representative from Paley Library, and a representative from the Writing Center.

The Committee is chaired by the Director of the Student Success Center.
