Making Recommendations

Although writing consultants are expected to assist faculty and students, they are also studying the hosting departments' needs. Eventually consultants and the coordinator of WAC can generate recommendations for the hosting departments. Such recommendations might be as simple as suggesting that the department offer a few writing-intensive courses or develop departmental grading criteria. More ambitious recommendations might suggest a continuing discipline-specific writing center or even a discipline-specific writing course to be taught by the writing consultant or team taught by the writing consultant and a faculty member from the hosting department.
