New Inside CU Feature: Your Turn

We want to hear from you!

We're starting a new Inside CU segment, "Your Turn," in our July 11 edition. "Your Turn" will feature guest opinion articles from you, our CU-Boulder faculty and staff, on selected monthly topics.

Why are we doing this?

Because our campus community consists of different perspectives that often don't get heard. Because we want to know what people are talking about, and because we want Inside CU to be a forum for faculty and staff, as well as a place to get current campus news and features.

Of course there are some rules for participating:

  • Submissions must be no longer than 300 words in length and should include thoughtful analysis of the topic, often with statistical support and/or alternative proposals.
  • Proposed articles must be submitted by the deadline for that issue and may be returned to the writer before publication for length, grammar and accuracy revisions.
  • Articles must include full name, title, department, office phone number and CU-Boulder e-mail address. Anonymous submissions will not be published.
  • All opinion pieces are subject to editing and may not be published at all if the Inside CU editorial board judges them to be of insufficient interest to readers or inappropriate for a university publication. More specifically, opinion pieces containing personal criticism, information about CU-Boulder labor issues and non-campus elections will not be published. Inside CU may also limit the number of opinion pieces it publishes on one subject or from one individual.

Still interested? Good. The first question is "What topics do you want to explore in this column and why?" The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 5. The first set of responses will be published in the July 11 edition and the remainder in the July 25 edition. All articles should be submitted via email to 

That's it. Questions? Contact us at We look forward to hearing from you!
