The Writing Intensive Curriculum (WIC) Program

The Writing Intensive Curriculum Program supports and instructs faculty across the disciplines who are developing and teaching writing intensive courses as part of OSU's Baccalaureate Core requirements. Through faculty seminars, lunches, departmental consulting, review of course proposals, and the newsletter Teaching with Writing, WIC promotes excellence in writing and fosters a culture of writing at Oregon State University.

Spring Event Series

For the third year, WIC’s spring event series will be held via Zoom. While the remote modality precludes WIC’s regular provision of pizza, it has also allowed for greater scheduling flexibility, and this year’s events will be offered in a variety of time slots. In light of this change, it may be more appropriate to refer to this year’s “Spring Lunch Series” as a “Spring Snack Series,” albeit one which is strictly BYOSnack.
