Submission Policy
UAH Headlines is a weekly electronic news and information service for UAH faculty and staff. Information or announcements submitted for consideration will be subject to editing.

To submit an item, please send all information to headlines@uah.edu by 5 PM, on Wednesday before the Monday distribution.

To receive consideration, items and events:
- Should have broad, campus-wide appeal.
- Should be open to all faculty and staff and important to the campus community.
- Must be held on the UAH campus.
- Announcements of off-campus events can be published only if there is a strong University connection.
- Under no circumstances will commercial activities be posted.

As a rule, announcements will not be repeated unless they are deemed by the Office of Marketing and Communications to be of significant importance to the campus community as to outweigh other considerations.
