Connections is edited and published by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, and this office determines the suitability of all items for publications.
The newsletter is published most Wednesday evenings during the academic year. All undergraduates and students in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences receive an email version of Connections.
Only students, faculty, and staff may post notices in Connections, and only University-related notices will be published.
Connections limits postings of events. To publicize your event, please submit it to the Student Activities Calendar.
Submitting an Announcement to Connections
- The Connections email newsletter includes a headline for each announcement, and often a subheading, both of which are linked to full announcements on the weekly Connections Web page.
- Announcements that appear on the Web should be brief, generally less than 70 words. Submit your announcement in plain text - no italics, boldface, or indentations, using the form on this page.
- In the interest of brevity and newsiness, repeat submissions may be denied.
Items for Connections must be submitted by noon Monday to be considered for inclusion in the Wednesday release of Connections on any given week.
- Connections will not include any postings for events that take place on the Wednesday of publication.
- Please provide a website for readers to find more information. If you do not provide a URL, the contact email will be used instead.
- Submissions to Connections should conform to Associated Press style. This is particularly important in describing dates. Dates and times should follow AP style for abbreviations (Jan. Feb. March April May June July Aug. Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec.). For example: Feb. 7, 7 p.m. or Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m.
- Please do not include days of the week (Monday, Tuesday, etc.)
- The proper abridged form of the University’s name is UVA.
