About Rock Research Expo


Rock Research Expo is published online twice yearly, in Spring and Fall. Rock Research Expo (RRE) serves as a newsletter that keeps our campus informed of the exciting accomplishments, scholarly endeavors and potential research opportunities for both faculty members and students. Specifically, Rock Research Expo aims to:

  • To introduce new knowledge of different disciplines to campus students,
  • To provoke students’ interests and curiosity in knowledge exploration,
  • To promote long term academic communication and collaboration on campus, and most importantly,
  • To develop a success-driven environment of learning for both professors and students


  • Recent publications of faculty members and students on campus (title, authors, and short abstract)
  • Research Projects and Grant Acquisition (title, authors, brief introduction)
  • Recent conference presentations of faculty members and students
  • Announcement of grant opportunities
  • Announcement of visiting scholars on campus and a short bio for each scholar.
  • Announcement of research related activities on campus


  • Information submitted should be an in depth elaboration in layman terms to excite the readers.
  • Anyone on campus could submit their information online or by email. Student submission needs to have a supporting letter or email from a faculty member.
  • The basic submission standards for the newsletter will be that the submitted material be legible, pertinent, and appropriate to present to the campus community.
  • Authors should be responsible for the accuracy of their submissions. Newsletter editors and SRU will NOT be responsible for the verification of the submitted information.
