If my notice won't appear in the Daily, how else can I promote it?

One fast, simple way to promote your campus event is to post the event details to your department, school or college calendar. Events that have broad audience appeal and are open to the public may also be submitted for entry to the University Events Calendar, which feeds the events listing on the university home page.

To submit your event for University Events Calendar consideration, you can:

  1. Create an event on your personal Google Calendar, complete with a title, date/time, location and brief description of your event. Send an invitation to that event to

  2. Already have your event listed on your department, school and/or college calendar? Send the public link to the event posting to with email subject line "Events Calendar Submission."

Emails without proper subject lines will not be opened. Because a great number of events are submitted for the central listing, not all submissions will be accepted.

Submissions not provided as Google Calendar events will not be processed.

The University Events Calendar, whose listing appears on the university home page, is maintained by University Marketing and Communications. A number of departments, schools and centers have also created event calendars for their respective areas. See a listing of existing calendars.

You can also post your news in the Community Postings. These items must be university-related and appropriate for the university audience (e.g., no advertisements, spam, profanity, defamatory language or events featuring alcohol). These items are subject to approval by the editor. Individuals not operating in an official capacity with the university cannot post to the community page.

Why can't I choose how often I want to receive the Daily?

It is important for members of the Case community to receive messages from the university throughout the week. Valuable information--facility closings, traffic updates and human resource notices, among others-will be included in the Daily.

How do you decide which articles to feature?

When selecting news stories we choose items that prominently feature Case Western Reserve or a member of the university community and may be of interest to a broad range of our reading audience. We do not censor stories based on topic or opinion, but will leave out articles that duplicate stories we've already featured.

Why can't my submission appear in the Daily twice?

Because it is a weekday publication, our goal is to keep the content fresh and engaging. The Daily is designed to show the range of programs, events and services available to the campus community on any given day.

What criteria do you use to decide which submissions will appear in the Daily?

Items (e.g., news, events, programs) considered for publication in the Daily must be sanctioned by the university and have a university-wide appeal.

In addition, the Daily will occasionally reference the university's Supplier Diversity Program and Preferred Vendor List, which has information about special programs and discounts offered to the university community from UCI and Cleveland-area businesses. In general, off-campus listings can be posted if there is a strong university connection and/or the university has established a partnership with the sponsoring organization or group.

Why are some obituaries included in the Daily and others are not?

The Daily includes obituaries about members of the university and/or alumni community who have made a significant contribution(s) to their department, school, college or the university at large.

Why are some messages sent separately from the Daily, and others not?

On occasion, when warranted by breaking news-and only at the direction of the president, provost or chair of the university's board of trustees-University Marketing and Communications will issue a Daily Extra, a special edition of the newsletter that comes separate from and later in the day than the Daily. The issue will contain news so timely that it cannot be held until the next issue of the Daily.
