Matthew Fleming

Associate Director, Harris Writing Program


Matthew has joined Harris as the Assistant Director of the Writing Program. He will be working as a writer, editor, and teacher to coach graduate students in public policy to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences to tell the narratives of their work. He will help design and lead writing workshops and create teaching materials to help Harris students better translate complex research findings into clear, concise, and high-impact policy memos and reports. As the Assistant Director, Matthew will also meet one-on-one with students and provide confidential consultations about writing and/or writing pedagogy. Additionally, he will gather and analyze feedback data from current students and alumni—as well as from peer institutions—that can be used to help build program capacity and improve performance.  

Matthew holds an M.A. in applied linguistics and has spent the past decade working with English-language learners both in the United States and abroad.
