Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I SUBMIT MATERIALS FOR INCLUSION?

Complete the Content Submission Form and then email your work to pillars@taylor.edu.

I'M NOT SURE MY CONTENT IS GOOD ENOUGH/APPROPRIATE FOR THIS TYPE OF COLLECTION.

Are you affiliated with Taylor University? Does your contribution document some aspect of how you have experienced the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, it's probably appropriate for the collection! We are looking for all kinds of materials - those that express creativity, those that document individual feelings and reactions, experiences of transitioning to virtual learning, examples of day-to-day routines, etc. 

If you have any questions about whether an item is appropriate, please feel free to contact pillars@taylor.edu.

MY FILE IS TOO LARGE OR CAN'T BE SENT VIA EMAIL

Please email pillars@taylor.edu and let us know what kind of file you're hoping to send.

I'M NOT A CURRENT FACULTY, STAFF, OR STUDENT BUT WANT TO SUBMIT CONTENT. CAN I?

While this collection endeavors to document the experiences of the current Taylor community, we recognize that our alumni, parents, and friends may have Taylor-related experiences to share. Members of the broader Taylor community are invited to submit content for consideration by selecting "Other" on the Content Submission Form and explaining their relationship to the Taylor community in the abstract or the email containing the file of their submission. 

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE PUBLIC COLLECTION? I WANT TO SUBMIT SOMETHING ANONYMOUSLY. IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Information that will be included in the public collection will include: Full name, affiliation with Taylor University, and information about the material you are submitting. Email addresses will NOT be made public. If you indicate in your submission (in the email with the file) that you would like for your submission to remain anonymous, we will honor that request. If possible, we would like to include basic information such as your status at Taylor (e.g., student, faculty). While anonymous submissions are not necessarily encouraged, they will be considered for inclusion.
