Fliers are no longer being accepted for the digest in order to keep the digest a manageable size.

Articles, Stories, and News Items
Copy submitted to the Digest must be organized. Please include any critical information (who, what, when, where, etc.)

Examples of copy that will not be considered include:

  • Information unorganized throughout an email strand.
  • Submissions requesting that we contact others for more information.
  • Submissions requesting we do research to include further information.

Be sure to ALWAYS include the title you would like to have presented along with your piece. 

Upcoming Events and Deadlines
If you have an event or deadline that will be taking place within the next two months, you may request to have the information included here, rather than the body of the newsletter. 
Submissions for this must include the event or deadline name, date, location and any times-frames that may be relevant.
Links may also be included here.  

When including links in your request, please be sure to paste the link in directly behind where you would like the link to be included. Hyperlinks WILL NOT transfer over within the Project Request Form.
If you would like an image to by hyperlinked, please be sure to note this in the "comments or special requests" box when submitting the request form. 

Excused Absences 
Absence lists must be typed out and submitted via the project request form.
Handwritten lists WILL NOT be accepted.
Absence lists will run once on either the Tuesday or Friday closest (and prior to) the requested date. 


Please Note:

The Digest is sent out every Tuesday and Friday morning during the term and on Fridays during breaks.
You must submit you materials by noon the day prior to send-out for it to be included in the next available issue.

To keep the Digest at a manageable size, entries will run one time each but may run twice depending on volume of material submitted that week. Submissions ran twice, will be ran consecutively.

Entries may be moved to the "Upcoming Events and Deadlines" section of the Digest if requested.

Exceptions will be made for information pertaining to university hours or items included in the "Upcoming Events and Deadlines" portion of the newsletter.


When to Submit

Entries are allowed to run more than once as long as they are submitted at least two weeks (four runs) apart from the original run date.

A separate submission must be made for ANY entry to run again. 

Weekly repeats or consecutive submissions are not guaranteed to be ran.

The decision to consecutively run material is based off of the amount of material submitted that week (exceptions are made for important Human Resource announcements).

Please be sure NOT to submit your materials more than a week prior to the desired run date (so that your request does not get lost).
