About the Conference

UVU's annual Conference on Writing for Social Change challenges students and community members to effect positive change in the world through the power of writing. Our mission is to empower students and community members with the writing skills and experience they need to effect positive social change in the world. The conference provides students and other presenters with an audience for their research, writing, and other social change project presentations. Each presenter also receives invaluable, confidence–building experience by sharing their work in a formal, academic setting.
