How and what do I submit?
The process is designed to be easy and quick. However, missing or incomplete information will delay posting. Please submit the following:

  • 100-120-word description of a research project or projects you want to highlight; written in third person. Please spell out the names of your projects and identify those involved.
  • Separately attached (not embedded in a word document or PowerPoint) picture/image emphasizing your research (e.g., human image, iconic photo, cartoon, computer model, etc.) which you have permission to use. Copyrighted material will not be used. Photos of students must be obtained with written permission of the student. If you are not included in the picture, then a head shot is requested. Please contact the Office of Communication and Marketing for help.

Submit your research information (description and image) to Dr. Margaret Bausch: meb@nulluky.edu

What if I need help?
You can contact your faculty Research Advisory Committee member or any member of the committee for questions or support.
