What are WSU Announcements?

These are highly transactional types of notices of general university interest. They are self-uploaded by the units that authored the notices and submitting units are expected to copy edit and ensure factual accuracy. Examples of include:

  • Targeted training and event opportunities
  • Campus- and audience-specific sales, fundraisers, events
  • Shared leave notices
  • Retirement notices, including invitations to farewell gatherings
  • Memorial notices for current and former employees with link to published obituaries or death notices
  • Note: The central news team can elevate announcements to the Insider home page as well (particularly when they have systemwide appeal or support the university’s key strategic initiatives)
