Carnegie Mellon University

To honor the important work produced in courses aligned with the new Dietrich College General Education Program (launched Fall 2021), the Dietrich College General Education and Department of English Writing & Communication Programs are launching a new academic journal, WOVEN.

The GenEd program asks students to think deeply and critically about our shared history and common humanity as it prepares them to tackle complex problems in work and in life. Courses aligned with this new GenEd program ask students to grapple with foundational questions of society and to seek solutions for social, political, and global challenges such as inequality and injustice, climate change and voting.

WOVEN will feature works of communication, from any and all genres. From essays to short films, proposals to podcasts, reports to websites, data stories to literature reviews, WOVEN aims to feature a wide variety of exceptional student work.
