Sands compared the work the Epiphany Project is doing to that of the Writing Across the Curriculum, WAC, movement. Sands noted many of the obstacles encountered by the Computers and Writing movement are identical to those that Art Young identified as the major hurdles faced by the WAC movement. Specifically, Sands talked about what the lessons of WAC can teach us about faculty resistance to teaching with technology, including the need for encouraging STEPs- like experimentation and "the need to create a climate where faculty can connect with each others' work, not just with their own, such that any major initiative such as WAC or Epiphany is not tied to an individual leader but is intimately connected with the INSTITUTION."
