Through a unique arrangement with the Center for Multicultural and Diversity Education and the Office of Diversity Affairs, I began working on a semester newsletter last August that showcases the works of each department within the Office of Diversity Affairs. This experience has really shaped my communication skills overall. I have continued to develop my writing and editing skills as well as my time-management skills (working under deadlines) and working on my own with minimal guidance.
During the beginning of the semester, I requested content from the different departments to feature their articles in the newsletter. Some stories featured were written by the departments while others I wrote and edited. As with all other publications, this newsletter took much time and effort (not just of me) but of many others. Special thanks to everyone who helped in any way! See below for the first publication!
