What does TRAC mean to you?

My commitment to working as a TRAC Writing Fellow and my deep support for the program have been continuously invigorated by the program’s initiative and its importance to the development of Lehigh’s academic atmosphere. As a university with widely-recognized prowess in business and engineering, and with growing strength in the arts and sciences, Lehigh is teeming with highly motivated students that desire technical mastery in their respective fields. However, in this increasingly flat and integrated global economic community, the ability to effectively convey ideas to those from other disciplines, experiences, and cultures - whether they are colleagues, associates, clients, or supervisors - has become a vital skill. As TRAC Fellows, we have the unique opportunity to increase awareness among our peers, professors, and administrative bodies of the significance of refined skills in writing and communication for all students, regardless of how technical their disciplines may be.
