Better Writing by 2015

The KCC Writing Initiative: Better Writing by 2015 is a Writing Across the Curriculum, faculty-driven project with the goal of creating an engaging and exciting culture of writing, reflection, revision and assessment.

Such a culture will benefit all members of the KCC community, including students as they prepare for future careers. Ultimately, all students and college employees will participate in — and benefit from — the Writing Initiative.

The KCC Writing Initiative team is currently engaged in carrying out the following:

  • Establishing constant faculty participation in developing and maintaining shared writing standards and in recognizing and creating meaningful writing opportunities in classes at KCC
  • Providing resources geared toward “best practices” writing assignments currently used by faculty in the various KCC disciplines
  • Providing writing-related professional development opportunities for KCC employees
