Greetings. I am pleased to introduce the University of Minnesota Technical Communication Advisory Board (TCAB). We have gathered a select group of professionals within Technical Communication to provide a richer experience for our students, industry partners, and faculty.

This diverse group is made up of seasoned business leaders, many of whom are Department of Writing Studies Alumni. They represent the medical device industry, IT, online learning, and many other fields.

By helping students connect with current industry leaders, the new TCAB will help both undergraduate and graduate technical communication studies connect with experiential learning opportunities. These opportunities might include one-to-one career advice, informational interviews, and internships. Students can better tailor their coursework to their career goals and forge new paths.

Professor Ann Hill Duin, Professor Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch, and I encourage you to learn more about the advisory board and how you can connect with members and learn from their expertise! Start connecting by joining our LinkedIn page.
