What type of content would you like to submit?

Your submission may not appear on the Elm right away. Please allow time for it to be reviewed and approved for publication.

We do require that all content remain civil and, on behalf of the University, we reserve the right not to publish content that we believe is inappropriate for any reason. Inappropriate content includes, but is not limited to, material that is defamatory, profane, culturally insensitive, offensive, or under copyright.

Voices & Opinions

I am a member of the UMB community, and I would like to share my thoughts, ideas, or personal opinions. I understand that my article must adhere to standards of respect and decency.

Submit a Voices & Opinions Article.


I would like to submit accolades for UMB faculty, staff, and/or students and their accomplishments.

Submit an Accolade.


I would like to announce time-sensitive information, such as closures or reminders of upcoming deadlines. This announcement can be supplemental to a calendar event, but it cannot merely duplicate an event on The Elm Calendar.

Submit an Announcement.

Elm Stories

I would like to submit a typical full-length story or article. My content does not overlap with announcements, Voices & Opinions, calendar events, or any other content categories on the Elm.

Submit an Elm Story.

Calendar Events

I would like to add an event such as an activity, workshop, or seminar to The Elm Calendar. This event has a defined date, location, start time, and end time.

Calendar events are not applicable for inclusion in Elm Weekly email newsletters.

Submit a Calendar Event.
