A WIM Sea Change
This spring, the Writing and Rhetoric Requirement Governance Board approved a change in how the Program in Human Biology designates its Writing in the Major course. Up until now, the WIM class for Hum Bio has been part of the spring quarter of the year-long, 30-unit Hum Bio Core sequence. Now, reflecting an expansion and rethinking that has been underway for more than three years, the entire three-quarter “B-Side” (explained below) sequence will be considered the WIM. What does that mean and why does it matter?
