News items must be from a UNC department or office, a chartered student organization
or other UNC-affiliated program and will be accepted only from UNC faculty, staff
and students with email addresses ending in unco.edu or bears.unco.edu.
The content of news submissions must be directly related to the university and must
not contain commercial advertising, solicitation or religious or political editorials.
Submitted news will be reviewed within 24 hours (excluding weekends). Deadline for
submissions to be included in the following day's newsletter is 4 p.m.
Approved news will be edited as necessary and placed into the appropriate newsletter,
the UNC News website or a news release at the discretion of the news editor.
University News and Public Relations staff will edit approved news for accuracy,
brevity, clarity and suitability. If a submission is better suited to a different
communication vehicle, it will be forwarded. Items that are incomplete or inaccurate
or do not meet guidelines will be e-mailed back to the submitter with an explanation.
Submitters are encouraged to make necessary changes and resubmit the item. The university
reserves the right to review, suspend or deny announcement requests for any reason.
For more detailed information about communicating information to members of the
university community, read pages 87-91 of University Regulations.
