Pomona College WAC-Based First-Year Writing Seminar and Writing Center

Dara Regaignon

“Writing and ID1” serves as a programmatic statement of the writing goals for Pomona College’s first-year writing seminar program, called “ID1” on campus after its registration code. The document itself was developed collaboratively over the course of roughly five years, from 2001 to 2006. Multiple groups of faculty from across the college were involved. Since it was finalized in 2006, it has served as part of the central nervous system of writing at Pomona, helping not only faculty who teach first-year writing seminars but also tutors in the Writing Center communicate in similar terms about writing as process as well as product.
