Daily Bulletin Editorial Policy
Submissions for the Daily Bulletin should generally adhere to these guidelines:
Events should (1) take place on campus; (2) be sponsored by Buffalo State or largely involve Buffalo State faculty members, staff members, or student groups; or (3) support the college mission, strategic plan, or professional development of faculty and staff. The Daily Bulletin is not used to promote events taking place in the general community, regardless of their merit. Readers are encouraged to spread the word about community events in other ways.
The following items are not appropriate for inclusion in the Daily Bulletin:
- Commercial announcements
- Personal messages or news, such as birth or marriage announcements
- News or information about community events, organizations, or agencies that does not pertain directly to Buffalo State
- Messages or material that is of questionable taste or has the potential to be divisive
The college reserves the right to decline to publish submissions that do not meet these guidelines. Submissions are subject to editing.
Buffalo State Events Calendar
Faculty and staff members are encouraged to separately submit information about their events to the campus Events Calendar database. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about calendar listings.
