Mason’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program is recognized in the 2008 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges as one of the nation’s top “Programs to Look For.”
A total of 15 other programs were highlighted in this category as being among the most distinguished “programs commonly linked to student success,” according to the national news magazine. Other institutions represented here were University of Chicago, Cornell University, Stanford University and Duke University.
The WAC Program was established in 1977 with the purpose of helping develop literacy and skillful writing throughout the university.
In U.S. News & World Report’s overall rankings, Mason was again listed in the third tier of national colleges and universities. In this grouping, Mason enjoyed the second highest peer assessment score—2.9% out of a possible 5.0%.
