Welcome to WAC at Mason
A Fairfax campus landmark: George Mason,
writer of the Virginia Declaration of Rights,
a model for the Bill of Rights.
At our large state institution, we are proud of the culture of writing that has been
created and fostered over the years by faculty, academic departments, and higher administration, all of whom share
a commitment to student writers and writing in disciplines. Central to our WAC mission is the belief that when
students are given frequent opportunities for writing across the university curriculum, they think more critically
and creatively, engage more deeply in their learning, and are better able to transfer what they have learned from
course to course, context to context.
- Fall 2012 Note: This website is in the process of being transferred to a new content management server, which will make it much easier for us to manage and update content. Although the site will look the same after the transfer, we will not be updating or adding material until December 2012/January 2013. Thank you for your patience during this time.
- September 2012: Congratulations to us—AGAIN! For the 11th year in a row, Mason has made the U.S. News and World Report list of top schools for writing in the disciplines.
