The University will produce its first-ever undergraduate research journal, The Exley, giving  UT Dallas students an outlet to publish analytical articles related to their research activities and creative works.

The benefits for contributors will be many, said the University’s Dean of Undergraduate Education, Dr. Sheila Amin Gutiérrez de Piñeres.

“We believe The Exley provides an opportunity for our undergrads to become even more engaged in the work they’re already doing alongside our faculty, graduate and post-doctoral students,” Piñeres said. “The University is committed to supporting research at all levels, and specifically, excellence in our undergraduate research endeavors.  We think the creation of this journal proves that.”

The first edition of The Exley will be printed in the spring, and the deadline for submission is Friday, Sept. 30.  Initial proposals should be 500 words or less, and students whose articles are selected should be prepared to submit their complete, final articles by Nov. 4.

Profiles of each student whose work is selected will be included in the journal, and undergraduates from every discipline are invited to participate.  Detailed guidelines for submission are available on the Exley Web page.

The journal is managed by the Office of Undergraduate Education and is printed in collaboration with staff from the Office of Research and the Office of Communications, along with administrators from each school as well as faculty and students.

The Exley is named after UT Dallas supporter and former longtime staff member Elizabeth Exley Hodge.

The Exley is named after UT Dallas supporter and former longtime staff member Elizabeth Exley Hodge.  She began work in the University's administrative offices in 1967 when the institution was called the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies.

When the Center became UT Dallas in 1969, Hodge transferred to the Biology Department in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, where she assisted faculty members in preparing research grant applications.

After a number of years in grants management in the school, and later in the Office of Sponsored Projects, she retired in 1986. She currently resides in Dallas.  Read More
