Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)


Since 1999, CUNY has promoted the centrality of writing to a university education and calling for the integration of writing across the curriculum. You can read more about the WAC program here. Professor Swan Kim (English) and Professor Giulia Guarnieri (Modern Languages) are the BCC WAC coordinators.

WAC Fellow at BCC

Students enrolled in Writing Intensive classes are welcome to work with Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) fellows during office hours in Colston 233. WAC fellows are advanced PhD students from various disciplines at the CUNY Graduate Center. Many BCC students come for help writing a paper, understanding an assignment, or doing research for a paper. WAC fellows are not proofreaders but can help students identify frequent sentence-level errors in their papers.

Please note, the WAC fellow at BCC can work with you on writing strategies, but are not intended to help with content. If you want help with understanding class content, please visit the History tutor.

2021 – 2022 WAC Fellow

While students are welcome to work with any of the WAC fellows, Madeline Lafuse is serving as a liaison for the History Department for the 2021-2022 academic year.  Madeline is a PhD candidate in History at CUNY Graduate Center. She writes on slavery and poison in nineteenth-century New Orleans. She was previously a Graduate Teaching Fellow in the History Department at Lehman College and taught six semesters of the US History survey through Reconstruction.
