Upcoming changes to faculty, staff communications
In an effort to be as efficient as possible when communicating to the entire campus, the University is making a change and is establishing Dateline as the primary means of notifying faculty and staff of any official communications.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 2, all faculty and staff will be automatically enrolled in Dateline and the faculty/staff listserv will no longer be used for general announcements. This change will provide recipients consistency and a comprehensive source for information.
Dateline is distributed at approximately 9 a.m. Monday through Friday throughout the year, and Dateline additions are sent on an as-needed basis when urgent matters arise. Anyone wishing to submit items to Dateline may continue to do so by sending information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This change will not affect the University’s use of text messaging during emergencies, or its use of B-Line as the primary mode of communication to students.
If you have any questions or comments, contact Katie Ellis at email@example.com.
