Charting a Path Toward Success
At Quinnipiac University, strong critical thinking and writing skills lead to more than higher grades. They improve students' understanding of concepts and theories, help them to gain confidence in expressing their own ideas, and establish the ground work for professional development and life-long learning.
Despite their importance, critical thinking and writing skills are not easy to learn and not easy to teach. That is why QUWAC has dedicated itself to researching, developing and implementing strategies that work. Through WAC training for faculty and WID consultations for departments, QUWAC assists individual professors and disciplinary programs to better understand how critical thinking and writing skills may be practiced and learned.
Our goal is to develop in students the same skills that our faculty have acquired, and to apply those skills in their own work.
