About this Book Chapter:

The authors present data from a national survey of college graduates and from three institutional studies to illustrate what writing experiences look like for alumni in the United States and at these institutions. Snapshots from each study explore how institutional efforts like campus-wide writing initiatives, writing majors, campus jobs, and other campus writing experiences prepare students for the writing they’ll encounter as alumni.
