Take Note

Changes ahead for copy, print center
Emory is changing both its on-campus copy and print vendor, and the print center location on campus.
Later this fall, a new copy and print center will open in the Dobbs University Center (DUC) to replace the previous center in Woodruff Library that closed over the summer.

A new on-campus copy and print vendor will be selected and announced in early September. Until that time, copy and print customers are encouraged to use FedEx Office, Emory’s preferred off-site copy service provider located at the corner of North Decatur and Clairmont roads.

Once the new on-campus vendor is selected, that company will be able to accept online copy and print projects until the new DUC location opens later in the fall.

Levy Award notices research excellence
Sept. 15 is the deadline for applications for the Albert E. Levy Scientific Research Awards.
The awards, two of which are presented annually, were established to recognize outstanding scientific contributions by Emory faculty members.

One award is given to a junior faculty member, the other to a senior faculty member. Fields encompass mathematics, social science, chemistry, physics and the biological sciences.

Nominations are to include one or more peer-reviewed papers; a nomination letter; and a brief description of the impact the results described in the paper have in the specific field of study.

Visit www.urc.emory.edu/levy/ for application procedures, or contact Melanie Kingston at 404-727-7503 with questions concerning eligibility or other aspects of the award process.

Authors get time management help
Faculty members can get a leg up on their writing projects by applying for a fall workshop.

The application deadline is Sept. 18 for the Academic Ladder, a writing and time management workshop. Run by a faculty development consulting firm, the program assists tenure-track assistant professors in finishing a first book or article and provides tools for integrating writing into a crowded personal and professional schedule.

The four-week workshop includes an online component plus individualized coaching and runs throughout October. All tenure-track faculty members entering their third or fourth years are eligible and those interested should submit a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to Ling Guo.

The program is sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
