Thursday will be the new day to connect

Connections publication moves from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning

Beginning next week, the weekly publication of CU Connections will move from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning.

We will continue to post news updates in between issues as events warrant, and a weekly email reminder still will be sent to faculty and staff on all campuses. Notification now will be sent on Thursday mornings, when each new issue is available.

Story ideas and submissions are welcome from current and retired CU faculty and staff. News items must be submitted no later than noon Friday prior to Thursday publication. Inclusion of links to relevant Web pages is encouraged.

Formerly the Faculty and Staff Newsletter, CU Connections became the publication’s new name in July. The name was chosen with the input of the systemwide Faculty Council and Staff Council.

CU Connections recently was redesigned to provide a cleaner look and to enable commenting on individual stories. Readers are invited to take advantage of the opportunity to engage in discussion about individual items – simply sign up today to register with our site. We ask those who post comments to provide their names and contact information so that we may verify authenticity, but only names will be posted to the site with comments.

We’ll also continue to publish letters to the editor – including any thoughts and comments you have on this redesign. Material should be emailed to the editor of Connections:

Thanks for connecting with us.
