Administrative Writing Workshop

Are you thinking about your career path after you graduate?

Do you hope to get a job in a nonprofit, government, or commercial setting?

Or do you hope to serve in an administrative position as part or all of your work in an academic setting?

If so, the Administrative Writing Workshop will help you understand best practices in administrative writing and will introduce key writing strategies for common administrative problems. You will learn how to adapt your writing to fit the needs of an administrative position inside or outside the academy.

The free three-day workshop will explore differences between academic and professional writing, how style and form can advance your message, strategies and techniques for some common administrative writing tasks, how to write your own career materials, how to write collaboratively, and more.

During the workshop, participants will study examples, draft responses to prompts, and discuss sample materials and participant responses.
