The CUNY Graduate Center created The Professional Community and Communications Project (PCCP) to provide students with a combination of practical writing skill and professional contacts in hopes of opening doors to alternative career pathways.
The Center has developed a course in “Writing for Government and Non–Profits” that features a series of guest speakers (including Graduate Center alumni). Additionally, a series of informational sessions with government and non-profit employers will be offered that would be open to all humanists at The Graduate Center. These connections will help expand participants’ professional communities.
