After you’ve spent months and sometimes years on research, it's always nice to show your work to a larger audience. One way to do that is through publishing manuscripts or other forms of communication.
The Publications and Intellectual Properties Committee is part of the university governance. The committee is charged with recommending policies and procedures for publishing faculty manuscripts, computer software, films, and videotapes; publishing, dissemination, development, and evaluation of faculty manuscripts, or other items. In addition, the committee acts in an advisory capacity in publication and dissemination of intellectual properties.
