Program Description

Program Description

This webinar is designed for professionals and graduate students at all points in their career who have considered publishing as a professional. There are many opportunities for you to re-establish your roots as a scholar, whether it is sharing your knowledge of best practices, data from your program assessments, or simply your reflections on student affairs. Unfortunately many perceived barriers prevent us from moving forward with this goal. This session will break down those barriers, demystify the publishing process, and provide you with the tools and knowledge to nurture your idea and your inner scholar.
