The Virtual Writing Center

Wanaque Academic Center
Passaic County Community College's Main Campus is located in downtown Paterson, New Jersey. We also have satellite campuses at the Wanaque Academic Center in Wanaque, the Public Safety Academy in Wayne, and the newest site, our Passaic Academic Center in Passaic.

The under-construction PCCC Writing Center will be physically located on the Paterson campus. Fortunately, all of the WI courses redesigned as part of the Title V program will have online technologies that are important to these groups of students.

The use of eTutoring, Blackboard, LibGuides and ePortfolios are some of additional components of WI courses that Title V can support monetarily by providing software, support and compensation for faculty who choose to participate in the Initiative.

Since WI courses will be offered eventually at all four locations and also online, we are considering more ways to make writing assistance available on the Net through a "virtual" teaching and learning center website.

We are also preparing a schedule to offer face-to-face support at Wanaque to WI courses.

WI courses are scheduled to begin being offered on the Passaic campus in fall 2010.

Of course, all students in these courses from any location will be able to use the Writing Center in Paterson at any time.
