Ten members of Stanford's faculty in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering discuss the importance of communication in their disciplines and why writing matters to them.

Stanford undergraduate students in engineering, the humanities, mathematics, and the natural sciences talk about the importance of communication in their disciplines, and how their PWR experiences played a role in why writing matters to them.
