Communication Across the Curriculum

Communication Across the Curriculum (CAC) is UNCG's signature program of cross-departmental academic excellence, student development, and excellence in teaching. Our goals are to improve the communication skills of our students and also to improve teaching and learning, though the application of writing and speaking strategies in the classroom and through support for student and faculty communication projects through the Writing Center and Speaking Center.

Speaking and Writing Across the Curriculum

The General Education Curriculum requires that all UNCG students take two writing-intensive courses and two speaking-intensive courses, one of each being in the student's major. The College of Arts and Sciences requires an additional two writing-intensive courses. (See the Undergraduate Bulletin for additional details)

The Speaking Across the Curriculum (SAC) program and the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program oversee the development, review, and approval of proposals from the faculty for their courses to carry the Speaking Intensive (SI) and Writing Intensive (WI) markers.

CAC will accept proposals for submission to the WI and SI committees during these windows:
For courses to be taught with a marker Spring 2014: August 12, 2013 - October 11, 2013.
For courses to be taught with a marker Fall 2014: January 6, 2014 - March 14, 2014.

The proposal form is available at http://www.uncg.edu/cac/wisiprogram/forms.php

  • Effective May 1, 2014: Please send all WI or SI proposals directly to the GEC Program Assistant, Lynn Wyrick (plwyrick@uncg.edu) AND cc to the Chair of the General Education Council, Jonathan Zarecki (jpzareck@uncg.edu).
  • Only electronic versions of the forms and accompanying documents will be accepted. This process enables quicker distribution and responses, better documentation, and more accurate recording.
