Dr. Jennifer Veltsos

From January 2017-December 2020, I am on full-time reassignment as the Director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

I am an Associate Professor in the Technical Communication Program at Minnesota State University, Mankato, where I teach 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.
