Writing and Communication Program faculty members Alan Thomas Kohler and Courtney Novosat have worked closely with the Dietrich College General Education Program to launch a new journal intended to showcase exceptional student writing and communication projects produced within Dietrich’s recently re-designed Gen Ed courses. Rather than a static journal, WOVEN: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Dietrich College, will take the form of a landing page to capture the innovative works these courses facilitate. We’re excited to announce that WOVEN’s inaugural issue is now accepting submissions and will officially launch in Fall 2022. More information can be found at cmu.edu/dietrich/gened/woven/ and questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Dietrich is preparing to launch a new Community Engagement Program which will provide students with the opportunity to connect their academic coursework and professional goals with community leadership and social good. Students in the program will have access to meaningful courses, leadership workshops, networking opportunities with community leaders, and grants to receive financial support while engaging with the community through internships, projects, research or study abroad.
We are in the early stages of planning and are looking for students to form the first cohort that will also help shape the program. If you are interested in learning more, please provide your contact information on the interest form. Questions can be emailed to Kimberly Piatt, director of experiential learning.
