On Monday, November 2, the current system of e-mail distribution of Campus Notices to all staff and faculty will be replaced by a new “opt-in” system that is more convenient, inclusive, and flexible. If you want to receive Campus Notices after October 30, please go to to subscribe. This is a simple process. You can choose to subscribe to an RSS feed or to an e-mail newsletter that will be sent to you daily. If you don’t want either option, do nothing. I encourage you to activate your new Campus Notices subscription before November 2 so that you will not miss any notices when we make the change. However, you will see some duplication of notices during the transition period. I apologize in advance for this. As part of the new Campus Notices service, we are offering a new way to SUBMIT notices. Further details will be circulated by e-mail and posted to Here is a link to a helpful video regarding Campus Events and Campus Notices. NOTE: The campus-wide e-mail distribution system currently in effect will be reserved for emergency notices only after November 2.
