Writing Across the Curriculum

On September 7, 1994, Faculty Assembly approved the following:

  1. Every associate degree program at SUNY Canton will include at least one writing intensive course exclusive of the required Humanities course in the curriculum. The courses to be developed as writing intensive will be determined by the faculty in the department responsible for the curriculum. Writing intensive course guidelines can be found in the Appendix of the Faculty Handbook.
  2. Every course taught at SUNY Canton should include a writing component, specifically indicated in the course syllabi. Examples could include: some short summaries of what the student learned in the lesson, explanation of how to do a math problem instead of just doing the problem, or written summaries in laboratory reports.
