                                                             ii.      The final decision will be by the WAC director.

  • Q – What method will we use to check that WE classes keep the same requirements across the campus?

                                                               i.      Possibly student exit survey of those classes?

  • Q – What percentage of class grade will be a writing grade?
  • Q – Is faculty development only going to be offered to WE professors?  Or open to ALL faculty?

                                                               i.      We want to develop a culture of writing on campus so it should be open to all.
