Topic Option 1:

Topic Option 2:
Identify a service offered by the college that could use improvement (examples: parking, speed bumps, health club, food facilities, lab facilities, academic offerings, etc.).

Plan a presentation for the Board of Directors and the Administration, including President Keith Miller, to convince them to consider the change.

Assume the role of a group of consumer rights advocates that have been notified of a faulty product or service (related to your own professional training). Prepare a presentation for the Better Business Bureau to 1) inform them of the problem and to 2) convince them that a specific action (which you propose) must be taken.
Choose a topic. Identify a need. Persuade a specific audience (that you precisely identify) to meet that need. The proposal is a team written report. Build your proposal on the thoroughness of your research, the cogency of your organization, and the strength of your persuasion.
Each member of the team must contribute. Divide the responsibilities however works best for your team; just make sure everyone is clearly contributing.
Audience: The audience for this proposal is complex. The true audience for your specific proposal is the specific group responsible for making the decision to implement your suggestion. Part of your audience is your English professor where you are governed by the Proposal Rubric demands.

Document those sources appropriately. Failure to acknowledge a source through documentation is plagiarism.
