What is WAC/CAC?
The Pearce Center for Professional Communication has played a central role in establishing Clemson’s international reputation for Communication and Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing in the Disciplines. In 2001 TIME Magazine named Clemson “Public College of the Year” and featured Clemson’s commitment to WAC/WID. In the years since, Clemson has consistently been cited by U.S.News & World Report as a top school for Writing in the Disciplines, a list that includes universities such as Brown, Duke and Harvard.
WAC and CAC are defined as proficiency in writing/communicating through instruction and practice in a variety of courses and fields.
WID introduces students practice with the conventions and formats of a specific discipline.
