UMaine awarded 2017–2018 CCCC Writing Program Certificate of Excellence
The National Council of Teachers of English announced the University of Maine’s College Composition program has won a 2017–2018 CCCC Writing Program Certificate of Excellence.
The Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) is a constituent organization within the NCTE. Established in 2004, the award honors up to 20 writing programs a year. This year, UMaine is one of nine recipients.
The College Composition program at UMaine relies on a small pool of instructors to teach a variety of courses that respond to the needs of a diverse student population, according to the NCTE news release.
Faculty-administrators of the program have created a carefully thought-out curriculum sequence based on the most up-to-date theory and practices of the field, the release states. This is supported with a well-developed portfolio assessment process and ongoing program assessment measures.
The UMaine program will be announced as a recipient of the CCCC Writing Program Certificate of Excellence on March 16 during the 2018 CCCC Annual Convention in Kansas City, Missouri.
