ANNOUNCEMENTS

NOTE FROM UNI ONLINE EDITORIAL TEAMNEW

Recent changes to UNI Online were made to include broader university-wide news and to deliver a more reader friendly newsletter. We have heard from staff and faculty who feel too much information has been omitted, specifically information regarding lectures and academic opportunities for faculty and staff. We are being responsive and ask that you submit announcements for consideration, specifically lectures and university-wide speakers. However, it won't be possible to include all calendar events and meetings. University Relations will maintain editorial oversight and will strive to include more university announcements of interest to faculty and staff. For additional information, please email Stacey Christensen or call 273-6728.
