Working Papers

UUP has launched a new initiative designed to inspire and share good ideas and good writing.
The UUP Working Paper Series is open to both academic and professional SUNY faculty, who can write on any subject in any discipline. The purpose is to increase discussion among the campuses and to help junior faculty in the tenure process.

The papers submitted to the series go through a peer review process; reviewers' comments are shared with the authors, who also retain the Copyright to their submissions. Submitting a paper to the UUP Working Paper Series does not preclude the authors from publishing them in academic journals or other publications.

Papers should be e-mailed to UUP Vice President for Academics Jamie Dangler in Microsoft Word format at jdangler@uupmail.org.

To view and print the Working Papers, you'll need to install Adobe Reader®. If you do not already have a copy, click the logo below and follow the simple instructions for downloading and using this FREE product. It's highly recommended that you upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader®.
