Faculty Opinions Now Online

The University News Services has launched a Faculty Opinions Web page for online publication of op-ed-style opinion essays by current and former University faculty and administrators.

There are no restrictions on topics, within the bounds of good taste and
legality, though the goal of the page is to promote the University’s academic expertise.

The page is intended to bring worthwhile opinion pieces to the attention of the public, including journalists and local, state and federal policymakers. It is open to publication of opinion essays that have been submitted or published elsewhere. Additionally, writers will retain copyright to work first published on this site.

Submissions, which may range in length from 500 to 1,500 words, will be published at the discretion of opinion editor Charlotte Crystal, senior news officer at U.Va. News Services. All submissions accepted for publication will be edited for clarity, style and length. Pieces may be written by the authors themselves; edited or excerpted by U.Va. and affiliated foundation editorial staff from longer pieces or lectures written by the authors; or written by U.Va. and affiliated staff after interviews with the authors.

Faculty Opinions may be submitted one of three ways:

U.S. mail — Opinion Editor, U.Va. News
Services, P.O. Box 400229, Charlottesville, VA 22904-4229

Messenger mail — Opinion Editor, U.Va. News Services, Box 400229
E-mail —
(Preferred method.)
