Congratulations to the Center for Literary Publishing (CLP) and the director Stephanie G’Schwind for receiving this prestigious honor!
Programs are awarded this designation because they have achieved great distinction and set a standard for excellence in research, teaching, and service that may serve as a model for programs throughout the institution and externally. Thus, the Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence (PRSE) designation will provide enhanced visibility and enable advocacy in the context of the larger research and training missions of CSU. An annual graduate fellowship allocation from the Graduate School will accompany the PRSE designation. Additional funds will be made available to PRSE-designated programs through an annual Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) competition mechanism.
Stephanie G’Schwind, the Center’s director and Editor in Chief of Colorado Review, applied for this honor, and we are very proud that her hard work and dedication to the Center have been recognized by CSU. Home of Colorado Review, the Colorado Prize for Poetry, the Nelligan Prize for Short Fiction, and the Mountain West Poetry Series, the Center for Literary Publishing’s mission is two-fold: to publish contemporary short fiction, poetry, and nonfiction and to offer graduate students the opportunities to learn about and participate in literary publishing through a professional internship. The Center was established in 1992 and is housed in the English Department at Colorado State University.
