Campus Announcements

Get your news in Monday Briefing
It is now easier than ever to submit items to the weekly Monday Briefing section of the weekly Bulletin. The complicated approval process has been eliminated and submissions are now being accepted directly from all campus employees.

Monday Briefing is a way for campus units to communicate items related to the campus and campus-related activities. These can range from policy changes to retirement parties. The basic requirement is that the announcement should be of interest to a broad number of faculty and staff members. Monday Briefing is not intended for commercial messages, except by campus-based operations such as eateries. It is also not intended for political messages.

Items should be no longer than 150 words, and need to be submitted to by noon, Thursday. Items will run as they are submitted, but should not be first-person (“I would like to thank …”). To help readers, the unit submitting information will be identified at the end of the message. For details, visit
