Class of 2021: Cara Harman wants to help patients regain their lives

Cara Harman realized at a young age how happy she felt when she was helping someone else. At 6 years old, she wanted to help her parents’ close friends, whose baby was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.

“I drew them cards, helped my mom make dinners and baked goods for them and helped raise money towards the Muscular Dystrophy Association,” said Harman, who will graduate next month from the VCU Occupational Therapy Doctorate Program in the College of Health Professions.  “I remember even donating my tooth fairy money to the MDA.”


Introducing “The Write Track,” an online community writing space for faculty

VCU Faculty now have a space as a community to support one another in advancing writing projects, grants, book proposals, performances or exhibits, and much more with “The Write Track.” Essentially, this group is here to support anything that helps advance the scholarship and creative work of faculty colleagues.

According to organizers, this is intended as a peer to peer group with support from the Director of Faculty Success and CTLE. Think of it as one avenue to get your questions answered, create writing accountability, share progress, and find resources. The group will thrive best with more and more faculty participating. 


Please invite any VCU faculty -  all ranks, adjuncts are welcome! VCU doctoral students working on scholarship and writing are also welcome.
