We are especially interested in how your program approaches diversity in matters of recruitment and retention and how their efforts are paying off. What do you see as the keys to success for your programs? When you have completed this form, our staff will make a web page for your program that is something like this profile of the Jackson State University (opens in a new window).
Complete the following form and click on SUBMIT to submit your information. Be sure to hit the SUBMIT button before leaving this page, or your information will be lost. You may wish to compose your answers to the longer questions in a word processor and to cut and paste the resulting text into this form. Also, you may want to look through the form before beginning to fill it out, to make sure that you have all of the information you'll need at your fingertips.
Note that after you submit your form you can edit, refine and update it via your SERC account. Instructions for that will appear after you submit this form.

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.

Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
