Style Guide for Activities and Achievements Entries

This is an archived page. Publication of the Activities and Achievements column ceased in January, 2005.

To increase the number and range of faculty and staff accomplishments we are able to publish, the Advance invites you to submit your own entries. The sections are divided into: appointments, books, grants, presentations, professional organizations, and other publications.

Style guidelines for each of these sections are available below and from the Advance. Entries typed in Advance style for any of these sections are welcome, and will be published as space permits and in the order in which they are received. E-mail submissions are encouraged and can be sent to: advance@uconn.edu. Elizabeth Omara-Otunnu compiles "Activities and Achievements," and questions may be directed to her at (860) 486-3530.

The Activities and Achievements column, like other occasional features, is published on a space-available basis and not in every issue of the Advance.
