Update on the Writing across the Curriculum/gtPathways Research Competition

The gtPathways-WAC competition, administered cooperatively by the University Writing Program and TILT, was funded in 2012 by TILT and the College of Liberal Arts in order to encourage innovations to the gtPathways writing integration. Through this initiative, competition winners became Writing Research Fellows for 2012-13 and undertook relatively small projects that directly support the gtPathways Writing Integration Initiative.
