Preparing Students and the Program for the Workplace

The Technical Communication Advisory Board (TCAB) consists of a diverse group of industry professionals who benefit the department in several ways: from serving as guest speakers in classes, attending networking events, and serving as mentor to graduate students. “It’s really a win-win: TCAB involvement can help to strengthen the program itself, and it gives students an opportunity to learn about networking with potential mentors and employers,” says TCAB coordinator Liz Fendley.
