Tarleton State University continues to make efforts to improve productivity and efficiency and to respond to suggestions from faculty, staff and students. Over the years, we have received numerous complaints about excessive emails generated within the university and distributed to the entire faculty, staff and student email lists.  After research and testing, we have found a viable solution – the Tarleton Today Email Digest. Please see the Tarleton Today page for more information.
