• Guidelines for Mass Emails Distributed by the Office of Public Relations 

    The Office of Public Relations will distribute mass emails to the campus community for the following purposes:

    • Alert the campus community to an emergency situation on campus
    • Provide information about situations that would substantially alter the normal operation of the University (example: weather-related class delays or closings, and large-scale University-wide events)
    • Provide information relating to academic or campus community life that is important to significant portions of the faculty, staff, administration and students (example: registration and deadlines)

    The Office of Public Relations does not distribute through mass emails to the campus community:

    • Public debate or personal opinion
    • Political statements or endorsements
    • Personal items for purchase/rent or sought for purchase/rent
    • Advertisements, announcements or promotions for outside organizations or non-university-related events or interests
    • Lost or found items
    • Attachments (Web addresses for download may be included if applicable.)
    • Fundraisers, raffles, contests or other related items
    • Recruiting content for special interest groups
    • Announcements for special interest groups that may be considered unsolicited SPAM by the greater campus community

    Please follow these guidelines for submitting campus announcements to be posted at MyUWA:

    Please use the address pr@uwa.edu to request submit a MyUWA announcement, event or program sponsored by organizations approved by the Office of Student Affairs.

    Note: Only those announcements that meet the criteria set forth by the Office of Public Relation or Information Technology (http://www.uwa.edu/UWA_Email_Policy.aspx ) will be distributed; those that do not meet the criteria will not be distributed at the discretion of either office.
