Event Description:
The capstone memorandum is the culmination of an MPA student’s education and everything he has practiced and learned has led to this semester-long final project. The Writing Center is here to help students at every phase of their memo-writing process, beginning with this workshop. During the workshop, students will be instructed in the form of the policy memorandum and its components, including statement of topic and overview, issue analysis, stakeholder evaluation, and solution proposing. Additionally, students will also receive training in the methodology of incorporating information, including cost-benefit analysis, pro/con dialogue, and policy case study. Past the capstone project, the skills honed in this workshop will directly serve the students in a career in public administration where communication by memo is the standard. The workshop has a hands-on component.

Admission Information
Only MPA students who were registered during fall 2015 or are registered for spring 2016 are eligible to attend the workshops.
Other Details
To register for the workshops, students MUST sign up for workshops in advance either through TutorTrac (https://jjctutortrac.jjay.cuny.edu/TracWeb40/default.html), or email writing@jjay.cuny.edu their workshop choices with title, date, and time. Since the Center is closed in January to the general population, there will be no one to answer phones in case there is a problem with registering through TutorTrac.
