Company Submissions:

If you are interested in submitting a piece for publication and work for a company, ensure you can meet the guidelines below, and then contact Ed Bauer, Editor-in-Chief.

College or University Submissions:
If you work with a private college or university and have an interesting story to share—and can supply 850 words minimum, author headshot, an author bio, and high-resolution photography—reach out to us. Please note: If you happen to mention a company you have worked with as part of your article, the story could be edited to keep the piece from becoming advertorial in nature.

Please email Ed Bauer, Editor-in-Chief, with your suggested topic at

Guidelines/Audience Considerations

If you are writing for a company:
Note that our editorial is content-driven, not product-driven, and therefore must be focused on information that leaders of private colleges and universities need to make informed decisions, as opposed to advertorial that is pitching a specific company’s products or services.

We have an audience of nearly 24,000 leaders in higher education at colleges and universities—from executive leadership to facility managers, IT directors, athletic directors, and more. View the PUPN Media Guide on the “Advertise With Us” page for more detailed information.

Your piece can be 800-1700 words, and we are open to any focus or focuses that you believe would benefit our audience. We must have a minimum of 800 words to run the piece.

Author Info:
In the About the Author box, you may include company contact information and links to a company site. We ask for an author bio of around 40 words and an author headshot.

High-resolution photography to accompany the piece is strongly encouraged, and photos need to be 300 dpi for print.
