1.0 What is a SOAR Community?

 

A SOAR “Community” is an administrative unit, such as a school, department, college, institute, or center, at the Wichita State University that produces scholarly content, has long-term stability and can assume responsibility for setting Community policy.  Each community must be able to assign a coordinator who can work with SOAR staff at the Wichita State University Libraries.

Individuals faculty, researchers, or groups wishing to establish a SOAR community that do not fall into this definition, can create sub-communities within the university-wide Faculty and Researchers Community.
