Dr. Jennifer Veltsos

Interim Associate Vice President for Curriculum & Dean of Graduate Studies

Minnesota State University, Mankato

In my current role, I supervise the graduate and undergraduate curriculum, which I like to think is the heart of the University.

I am also a Professor in the Technical Communication Program at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I taught courses in business and technical communication, research methods, instructional design, and visual communication. My research interests are varied but focus on applications of rhetoric in the workplace and pedagogical practices in technical and professional communication.

From January 2017 - September 2019, I was reassigned to be the Director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
