Campus eNews Policies
eNews Publications provide a centralized mechanism to communicate to
various campus groups about campus events, deadlines and announcements.
Subscription to the lists is automatically generated each night from
the list of on-campus user accounts. Each of these lists is moderated
to maintain reasonable message quality and to prevent improper or unofficial
messages from being posted.
and Announcements - Only campus sponsored events, activities
and announcements will be included in the electronic publications.
Campus sponsorship must be by a department, oganization or club.
Off-campus events are not generally included.
Announcements - Submission of events and announcements should
be made only after the event is approved by the sponsoring organization
and the details are finalized. Submission of items should be made
by an official representative of the sponsoring organization.
- For Sale Items,
Off-Campus Housing, Want Ads - Starting in March 2000, these types
of items will no longer be published in To-The-Point or the
Fac/Staff Bulletin. Use the SPU Classifieds for these types of requests.
Go to the SPU Classifieds
to submit your Ads or to review the current listings.
in Advance - Once an item is submitted it will be reviewed and
approved prior to being included in a electronic publication (see
below for the publication schedule). It is recommended that you
submit your items by the due dates listed below to allow sufficient
time for the item to be reviewed and approved.
Not All Events
Will Be Listed - In order to maintain a manageable number of
items in the electronic publications, judgement will be used to
decide whether an item will be included or not. Some items that
have a narrow audience or interest WILL NOT be included.
Be Modified - The Publication Editors may modify the descriptions
or other other information that is submitted to improve consistency,
clarity and format.
Only Be Posted ONCE - Items included in the electronic publications
will generally only be posted one time. There are separate editorial
processes for the different publications. If your item is clearly
directed to BOTH students AND faculty/staff audiences, you need
to post separate items to each editor.
Job Postings Are NOT Allowed - In fairness to all campus departments,
individual departmental job postings are not allowed in Electronic
Publications. The Student Employment Office can list your student
job openings and the Human Resources Office can list your staff
- Special Announcements
or Messages - There is occasionally the need to distribute a message
to the campus-wide lists separately from To The Point or the Fac/Staff
Bulletin. These messages must be approved by the President's Office
and require assistance from Computer & Information Systems for
distribution. For more information, contact Dave Tindall at firstname.lastname@example.org
- PLEASE PROOF
READ - Please review your item prior to submission to make sure
it includes the proper time, place, cost and audience.
about these policies and procedures should be sent to the Publication Editors.
