WAC Awards Website Account Agreement

The account agreement and general disclaimer is found below.


The WAC Awards website allows account holders to submit and review nominations for awards sponsored by the WAC Clearinghouse and the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum. It also allows individuals managing or reviewing Nomination for an award to review and provide feedback on award nominations. Account holders may upload content to the site as part of the nomination process. Nominations are reviewed by authorized reviewers. This site is hosted and maintained by the WAC Clearinghouse and Colorado State University as a public service with the understanding that the WAC Clearinghouse, the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum, or Colorado State University do not make any warranties, either expressed or implied, concerning the accuracy, completeness, reliability, or suitability of the information on this website's pages.

General Regulations

Information found on this website is intended for the private use of visitors to the site except as noted in the introduction above. Please do not use this information for commercial, political, or business purposes such as selling products or sending broadcast email. Copyrighted material may be uploaded to and displayed on this website only with written (print or digital) permission of the owner of the copyright. The WAC Clearinghouse, the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum, and Colorado State University reserve the right to suspend or terminate the accounts of any individuals who misuse the information contained or who violate copyright laws on this website.


We do not share information about any of our account holders (e.g., email addresses, names, institutional affiliations) with any individuals or organizations. We will, however, record and analyze aggregate statistics about account holders' activities on the site to assess the effectiveness of our site design and to identify problems with the website. (Translation: we'll analyze how people use the site in an attempt to improve it.)

Your Awards Website Password

Please do not share your password with anyone. Together with the email address used to log in to your account, your password is your key to managing your account information and any materials you have added or uploaded to the site.

Please use a strong password for this site. It is generally considered good practice to use a long password string such as myauntsmiddlenameisnotbetty, as opposed to a string of letters and numbers that you might find difficult to remember. Should you forget your password, however, you can reset it. A reset message will be mailed to the email address associated with your account. You will be able to follow the links in that message to reset your password.

To guard your identity, please avoid using passwords that include sensitive personal information, such as your social security number or a work or institutional ID. It's also a good idea, whenever you create an account on the web, to avoid using the same password you use for accounts that contain sensitive information, such as accounts with banks, universities, colleges, and so on.


Administrators of this site may send periodic news and information to account holders through email. Most often, this news and information will provide notice of new features.

Links to Other Sites

This site may contain links to other websites and documents. We have no control over the content of other sites and cannot ensure it will not be offensive or objectionable. We will, however, remove links to material that we feel is inappropriate as we become aware of them.


The WAC Clearinghouse, the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum, and Colorado State University reserve the right to change this account agreement at any time. Any updates will be communicated to account holders via email.

By consenting to this agreement during your creation of your account on this site, you agree that you are fully responsible for any information or file supplied through your account. You also agree that you will not post any copyrighted material that is not owned by yourself without written permission (print or digital) of the copyright holder.
