Content

onCampus Today shares a wide variety of news with the faculty and staff audience. Due to the high volume of submissions, not all content items can be included in each day’s edition. University Marketing will work with its partners across campus to ensure the most pertinent items are included in a timely manner.

Among the items that will merit consideration are: Institutional/college/unit news, research news, campus events and opportunities (this includes regional campuses), Office of Human Resources updates and faculty/staff news and accomplishments.

Items that will not be considered for editorial inclusion are: Obituaries, retirement news, items that advertise for-profit ventures or for services that require payment, news unrelated to the Ohio State community, or items deemed inappropriate by University Marketing staff.
