Why a University Press Is a Good Investment

There’s a minor miracle continually performed by the 142 university presses worldwide who compose the membership of the Association of American University Presses (AAUP).

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the two largest funders of humanities research in the United States, are sponsoring a new joint fellowship opportunity to support high-quality “born digital” research in the humanities.

UPC Turns 50

When I reflect on university presses, my thoughts are currently pulled somewhat naturally toward our history and our future. As we ring in 2015, the University Press of Colorado, including our Utah State University Press imprint, is celebrating fifty years of publishing scholarly works in anthropology, composition, folklore, history, and natural history.
