Today, we announce a new university-wide WAC initiative. In collaboration with UCF's College of Graduate Studies, this academic year, we will offer a series of connected WAC-themed workshops designed specifically for graduate teaching assistants and other graduate students from across the disciplines interested in the learning and teaching of academic writing. The workshops will be offered as part of the Graduate College's long-standing Pathways to Success series. This is the first time WAC has been included in the series.

On the morning of Friday, April 18, 2014, I had the pleasure of interviewing associate professor Dan Murphree from the Department of History about his prior experiences in the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Faculty Fellows program. Dan was a Fellow during the spring 2012 semester and has since incorporated many lessons about writing assignment design and scaffolding into his courses. For these efforts, professor Murphree was awarded the first Schell Award for Innovative Writing Instruction in the Disciplines. In the abridged interview transcript that follows, he shares some of his thoughts about writing and his experiences in the Faculty Fellows program.
