The Communication Across the Curriculum (CAC) Program helps students understand the role of writing and speaking in their academic and professional lives. Both on its website ( and through the Illinois Tech Writing Center, located in Siegel Hall 232/233/234, the CAC provides assistance in communication skills for academic inquiry, professional research, and the workplace. The CAC also assists instructors in developing materials relevant to written, oral, electronic, and interpersonal communication in discipline-specific courses—particularly Introduction to the Profession (ITP), communication-intensive courses (C-courses), and Interprofessional Projects (IPROs). The CAC director also administers the university's Basic Writing Proficiency requirement.
