UW Today submission guidelines

UW Today is a daily email newsletter put together by staff in the UW News office and sent primarily to staff, faculty and others who sign up to receive it.

All items must have a link associated with it. For events, a calendar listing on the UW Trumba calendar is sufficient. (This is the “permalink” at the bottom of the calendar item.)


Events should be open to the public and either involve a UW faculty member and/or be on campus. They don’t need to be free, but that is preferred. When submitting an event, specify your “run-by” date as the date you wish the event to appear in the email. If you have an RSVP deadline, the run-by date should be before that.


Submissions can include stories by internal units or external news media. All stories must appeal to the broader campus community.


Internal stories live on a UW unit’s website. These stories need a photo — horizontal is required (600×358 ratio preferred).


External stories are typically shared via the “IN THE NEWS” section of the email, which highlights where UW researchers are quoted in the media. These items must relate to the individual’s work here at the UW and come from reputable news sources.


UW News staff may edit your proposed headline for length, style and clarity. Photos might also be cropped or changed depending on available context.
