Editor’s Note: Robert Cox interviewed Elevation as part of an undergraduate course at the University of Denver, “Writing for the Public Good,” held during the Spring 2021 quarter. The purpose of the class is to better understand the role that writing and research play in creating social change.

Students in our class have been challenged to think metacognitively and with the audience in mind to optimize the impact and reach of the writing they produce. Elevation, with its work writing and designing for nonprofits, has been practicing the craft for years.
