For our Dean Hank Dobin Prize in Community-Based Independent Work,
we require you to submit a draft of a short report along with your final junior paper or senior thesis. The resources below can help you think about how to structure and or adapt your paper with a larger readership in mind. If you have questions and would like to talk to us about your work, please schedule an appointment on WAAS
or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The following information is posted on our Dobin Prize
You might consider this required short document to be a type of policy brief, white paper or business report. It is intended to communicate the relevance of your project to a non-academic audience—likely your partner organization. Please note that we will archive the final version of your short report to share with students and community partners in the future when appropriate.
Resources for writing your short report:
- This presentation on how to write a policy brief describes the key sections of a report well.
- Use the Mad Lib document below to help identify your key claims and to understand why these claims will matter to your partner organization.
