Submit a News Item

Deadline: Noon on Wednesdays

Style: Messages should be no longer than 100 words and contain no special formatting such as bullets. No attachments (graphics or documents) will be included with messages.

Timing/Frequency: IHP this Week is sent 3:00 p.m. on Thursday afternoons. You can view all news and announcements on our Sharepoint site.

Stand-alone messages are reserved for information from the president’s and provost’s offices or messages regarding safety. For example, an initial message on a senior candidate search would be sent as a standalone; follow-up messages would be handled through the IHP This Week. On a limited basis, stand-alone messages can be sent on high-priority issues that are cleared through the Office of Strategic Communications.

Content: Items may be edited for style or formatting. Content should be directly related to an approved Institute activity and cannot violate the Institute solicitation policy. Please note in your heading who your message applies to (faculty, staff, students, post docs, or Institute wide).

Include the 5 Ws (Who, What, When, Where, Why). Please include a contact name on all announcements and, when appropriate, an email address or page link.

Please consider whether an all-user broadcast is the best method for your news item. Are there other distribution lists that better target your audience?

Published bi-annually, the IHP Magazine is mailed to alumni and friends of the school.
