Writing and Communication Lab

By Vincy Davis (class of 2022)

Offered to: Class of 2020, 2021, and 2022

Engaging public policy stakeholders requires a sound understanding of the policy landscape, skills to conduct research, write scientifically, and the ability to repurpose scientific writing into communication formats that suit stakeholders. The Writing and Communication Lab at ISPP offers apprentice-style training to develop scholars’ verbal, non-verbal and writing skills to communicate well in development, corporate, and academic settings. The Lab also works closely with the Careers team to support scholars' career development needs.

Through regular lectures and one on one sessions, the Lab will introduce scholars to:

  1. Public policy communication
  2. Academic writing
  3. Business communication
