Summary

A writing across the curriculum program offers an organized and systematic approach to involving all departments in the development of student literacy. Among preliminary steps in implementing these programs are (1) a review of the literature on student literacy, (2) a local assessment of college students' literacy needs, (3) a local assessment of faculty/administrative/ staff concerns about and perceptions of student literacy, (4) the formulation of a working definition of student literacy, (5) a study of proficiency requirements currently used to assess literacy, (6) an adaptation of those standardized tests or the development of an appropriate instrument for local needs, (7) the encouragement of faculty support and active participation in an interdisciplinary college committee on student literacy, (8) an assessment of the committee's success and an acceptance of its recommendations, and (9) the use of existing resources and personnel within the existing curriculum. (Appendixes include samples of student and faculty surveys for assessing concerns and needs.) (HOD)
