Community members participating in a a focus groupWe are currently beginning research into what kinds of writing, research, and outreach services would be beneficial for local nonprofits and businesses. Our goal with this project is to enact our mission through defining and promoting positive, ethical, and problem-solving discourse.

  • Managing email communication
  • Creating a compelling mission statement
  • Optimizing a social media presence
  • Developing productive collaboration
