Item Submission, Guidelines & Contacts
What is your publication frequency?
We publish twice in the fall and spring semesters, typically in August (during the week prior to the start of fall semester classes), October, February and April.
How is the newsletter distributed?
The newsletter is distributed to faculty, staff, colleagues, partners, fellow academic institutions and outside subscribers via email. Links in the body email take readers to the “full” newsletter page on this website, which contains extended content.
What items will you consider?
The Office of the Provost will consider news from academic units and other important information relevant to faculty and staff audiences.
Items that are great to share include, but are not limited to, calls for proposals, faculty/staff awards (including news about winning awards and calls for nominations), faculty opportunities involving professional service, service recognitions, policy/procedure changes, training opportunities, internal grant opportunities, workshops, new faculty/staff employee programs, academic program news (such as new programs), departmental/unit awards, and the like.
Who can submit items for consideration?
Faculty and/or staff at Georgia State, with very limited exceptions for non-profit educational, academic, or research organizations, such as those listed in the examples later in this paragraph, especially those with active partnerships or from scientific/academic organizations which provide funding/training opportunities. Examples: Partnerships involving Emory University, Morehouse College, Georgia Tech or another academic institution, the Atlanta Regional Commission on Higher Education, APLU, USU, University Innovation Alliance, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, etc.
I’m with a business. Can I submit an item for consideration?
We do not accept commercial solicitations.
What do I need to know when submitting items that have deadlines, like calls for proposals or award nomination deadlines?
Please consider the publication schedule for any time-related element to your item – for example, an event date, or an award nomination deadline. We prefer if the deadline or date is at least seven days or more after the newsletter is published.
For example, if a newsletter is published on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, the event or deadline should be on or after Tuesday, August 23, 2022.

Why might the publication schedule change?
The Office of the Provost is a high-level administrative office that can experience unexpected developments requiring publication date changes.
We make every attempt to adhere to the announced schedule, but as the pandemic and subsequent events in 2020 to present have taught all of us, there are times when things may need to be adjusted because of rapidly changing situations.
If we have accepted an item for publication but the publication date changes, we will notify the person who submitted the news item.
Why might my item be declined for publication?
The Office of the Provost reserves the right to decide the editorial content of the newsletter based on appropriateness, importance and usefulness to the faculty and staff of the university. Additionally, other communications channels, such as the Provost’s Office Twitter, a college/unit level e-newsletter, the main University News Hub, or other methods, might be more appropriate for maximum effectiveness in communicating the message you’re trying to convey.
By default, all faculty and staff are subscribed to this newsletter, but students are welcome to subscribe, as well as guests and alumni of the university. Subscribe by filling out the form below. Faculty, staff, students and subscribers can also opt out through a separate form below.
