WAC at Purdue

Purdue University does not have a formal WAC or WID program. However, Purdue's Writing Lab serves as an informal WAC support facility because its purpose is to assist all Purdue students as they write papers and reports for any class on campus. Further, Purdue's Online Writing Lab offers many helpful resources for teachers who would like to incorporate writing into their curriculum and for students who are writing across the disciplines.

Additionally, many sites include writing resources for students. A few of these prgrams are listed below:
