Publication Center

What Is the Publication Center?

The Publication Center is a multi-function space to enhance student learning about writing, visual rhetoric, publication, and circulation of print and digital documents of all kinds.

To this end, the Publication Center

  • Organizes open workshops for students on publication-oriented topics
  • Plans open lab times, so that students can bring their publication projects to the Center, and get aid from faculty mentors and peer tutors
  • Is a resource for students, with books, ephemera, software, equipment and tutorials in its physical and virtual spaces
  • Sponsors ongoing publication projects, such as student book competitions and the Write 500 Words project (examples only)
  • Assists faculty in becoming familiar/adept with publication processes and skills, including layout and design, so that these considerations can be infused broadly into the curriculum
  • Hosts speakers on publication-related topics
