Connections is edited and published by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. This office determines the suitability of all items for publications.

Summary

  • Published Wednesday afternoons during the fall and spring semesters (except for holidays).
  • Mailing list includes all UVA undergraduates plus students in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.
  • Only students, faculty, and staff may post notices.
  • Only University-related notices will be published.
  • Submissions may be edited for brevity and clarity.

Deadline

  • Noon on Monday for the following Wednesday’s edition.
  • In the interest of brevity and newsiness, repeat submissions may be denied.

Format

Heading: CIO name, event title, performer's name, lecture, etc.
Logistical Information: date, time, place, due date, etc.
Description: Brief explanation of the heading in 70 words or fewer.

A couple notes to consider:

  • Recipients of the email version of Connections will only see the headline, which links to the online version. Make the heading brief, yet informative.
  • To avoid repetition, do not repeat logistical information in the description. In some cases, such as in the sample below, dates not immediately relevant to the heading are necessary.
