This Week at Tarleton


This Week at Tarleton, formerly Tarleton Today, is the University-wide electronic newsletter for students, faculty, staff and retirees. Our mission is to keep the university community informed about university announcements, events and news and to be the primary source of information for Tarleton.


All students, faculty and staff included in the listserv are initially 'subscribed' to Tarleton Today, but may choose to opt out at any time.


A. Submitting Entries

  1. Submitting an Announcement
    1. Provide a short (less than 10 word) sentence explaining your announcement. Think headline style.
    2. Links - Any links to additional information should be accessible to all audiences. For this purpose, we can not allow links to images, posters or flyers.
  2. Submitting an Event
    1. Events should a name, date and link to details. 
    2. Online Calendar - All events should be added to the university calendar. This helps us monitor accessibility compliance, but it also gets you the maximum exposure for your events and allows them to be searchable on the website. Users can also RSVP, register or download forms all from within the calendar. Learn how to submit your events. 

Any submissions that do not meet accessibility requirements will be omitted. Review the accessibility standards. 

Submissions are due by 3:00 p.m. every Tuesday.

Schedule your submissions for Wednesdays only. Entries will no longer be automatically adjusted. 

B. Editing

Any items submitted may be edited for clarity, style and space consideration.

C. Editorial Considerations

The final decision for any item to be included rests solely with Marketing & Communications.

Tarleton Now

Tarleton Now will be used only for major breaking news or information that needs to be disseminated to the University community immediately. The assistant vice president of marketing & communications or designee will make decisions on issuing a Tarleton Now in consultation with the president, provost and/or vice president for Institutional Advancement.
