SUM features discoveries and creative work by faculty and students at the City University of New York (CUNY).

We cover news about significant, published work in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities as well as published literature and artistic work commissioned by or exhibited in major venues. We consider recent work by full-time faculty, instructional staff, and students that demonstrates an impact factor within its scholarly field. As such, we invite submissions that fall within these parameters and will consider them based on news value and relevance to a general audience. Please note: We do not cover news about grants, textbooks, and ongoing research that has not resulted in a published study.
