Announcements and other ideas may be submitted for consideration using the form below or by e-mailing Submission does not guarantee they will be used.

Home page
The University Home page is generally reserved for news and information that appeal to a broad audience, including the public. Only signature campus events, for example, will be featured on the Home page. Smaller events, announcements, and other internal communications to the University community are better suited for our new News page.

News page
The News page is an aggregation of University stories, announcements, and events. A central News Index/Archive is a repository of older stories from Media Relations, University Publications (Times), and University Web Communications. The Times Web site is still available for archived PDFs of print editions dating to 2000.

The News page includes SELECTED announcements and events and is not intended to replace the Announcements List or University Event Calendar.

Campus announcements should continue to be submitted to the University's Announcements listserv (e-mail and the Calendar of Events (e-mail for access to upload to the Calendar).

Media Relations page
News media who want official University news releases, information about faculty experts, story ideas, or other information, should visit the Media Relations Web site, or call 803-777-5400.
