FIT Direct for Employees
Submission Guidelines: To be considered for publication, entries should be of interest to the general college community and fall into one of three categories: Events (any activity or happening open to the entire college community, such as lectures or exhibitions), News (such as faculty awards or publications, contests, new acquisitions, or curriculum developments), Announcements (short-term, critical information such as building closings, deadlines for submitting personnel forms, and condolences), and Obituaries (for FIT employees).
Submission Requirements: No editorializing (articles may not express individual opinions) and no classifieds (such as house rentals, sublets, items for sale, etc.). Before clicking “submit,” be sure that all names are spelled correctly.
Submission Tips: Check with your co-workers to ensure that you are not duplicating anyone else’s submission. Check with your department head or supervisor to ensure that your entry is approved for college-wide distribution. Enter phone numbers as five-digit extensions (ex: x74700). Enter months as text (ex: April 4, 2006). In describing news items, please include all relevant dates. For example: “The competition took place in April, 2006,” and “the new facility opened its doors on April 6, 2006.”
Deadlines: To be included in the next newsletter, submissions should be received by the 20th of each month. Please do not submit event information more than two months prior to the date of the event.
