Submission Guidelines for Faculty/Staff Accomplishments

News releases about accomplishments are intended to promote accomplishments that have NOT been otherwise publicized. If information about an accomplishment is sent to media and covered by media BEFORE a news release is issued, that will decrease the likelihood of being included in a university news release.

Faculty/staff accomplishments are recognized in the Accomplishments section. Certain accomplishments are also recognized through news releases or faculty/staff updates.

Information about faculty/staff accomplishments should be sent to university communications. Or they may be submitted online.

Individual news releases will be issued for the following types of accomplishments:

  • Having a book published
  • National, multi-state or statewide recognition or award
  • Appointment to a national board or committee
  • Some large, highly-competitive national grants 

The following types of accomplishments will be included in faculty/staff updates, which combine several accomplishments in one news release:

  • New grant awards of greater than $5,000
  • Local recognition or award
  • Appointment to a statewide board or committee

The following types of accomplishments will be posted to the university news page under accomplishments:

  • Publication of an article in a magazine or journal
  • Publication of a chapter in a book
  • Presentations at a conference or convention
  • New grant awards under $5,000
  • Renewal or continuation of grants
  • Departmental or individual awards that do not fit within another category
  • Appointments or elections to local boards or committees
  • Appointment of new department heads and directors
