Today@Cornell is a weekday supplement of the Campus e-Newsletter, which is published Wednesdays. Today@Cornell feeds automatically from the master calendar and is updated hourly on the Student and Faculty/Staff Gateways. Weekend events appear in This Weekend@Cornell at noon on Fridays. Block break events run in Block Break@Cornell on Wednesday afternoon before each block break.
The deadline to have your events in the calendar or announcements submitted online is 3 p.m. for Tuesday through Friday events; 11 a.m. on Friday for weekend events; and 3 p.m. Friday for Monday events. Block Break events are due by 3 p.m. the Wednesday of each block break.
Events must appear in the master calendar in order to appear in Today@Cornell. All events are fed directly from the master calendar and run the day of the event and the day prior. Thus, it will be advisable to include a brief description of your event in the master calendar if you want more than a headline to appear in Today@Cornell, and we encourage you to provide a Web link for more information. At the discretion of the Today@Cornell editor, certain events spanning multiple days on the master calendar may be posted for three consecutive days on Today@Cornell.
Announcements should be submitted via the announcement form by the deadlines noted above. Information submitted is subject to approval and editing. Announcements will be limited to approximately 150 words; we encourage you to provide a link to a website for more information. Announcements will run once.
- Items must pertain specifically to Cornell and be college-sanctioned. For example, general information (e.g. National Service Week) will not be carried unless it has a Cornell connection (e.g. All-Campus Service Day). Announcements will not be posted in Today@Cornell if they have already appeared in a campus mass e-mail.
- Deaths of students, faculty, and staff — or the immediate families of faculty and staff — are included. Announcements of serious accidents involving students, faculty, or staff are included. Non-charitable advertisements are not posted.
- Only in special circumstances (i.e. items of great monetary, academic, or personal value) will lost and found items be listed in Today@Cornell. All lost or found items should be reported to The Commons Information Desk.
- Today@Cornell does not censor student-sponsored campus-wide events. Announcement of student-sponsored events does not imply institutional endorsement of those events.
Other publicity options
We recommend also using other campus venues to publicize the events: fliers, posters, Orange Carpet banners, master calendar, the Rock. By posting on the master calendar in advance, your event can appear in the monthly Calendar of Events e-mailed at the end of each month. We encourage the Cornell community to use the master calendar for advance planning.
