Is there a program, initiative, presentation, accomplishment, student or group of students of which you are particularly proud or would like more people to know about? Please take a moment to send news of your grants, research, presentations, expeditions, awards, residencies, conferences or anything you would like to share. Photos are welcome, as long as the resolution is reasonable.

The Submission Box is always open! For more information on how to contribute to Soundings, please contact:
