MSU Today accepts events and announcements targeted to faculty and staff. MSU Today items must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. the business day before the email is sent out in order to be included in the email. Please review the MSU Today mailing schedule

MSU Today accepts items promoting MSU-affiliated events, including concerts, lectures, cultural events and academic presentations, which are produced by MSU students, faculty and staff.  

MSU Today does not accept items from non-MSU entities. Nor does it accept items promoting sales, discounts, coupons or promotions for services of commercial or campus-commercial entities. 


Announcements appear at the top of the MSU Today email and provide updates that do not have a specified time and physical location. Examples of announcements include: 

  • Calls for volunteers or nominations. 
  • Deadlines for applications. 
  • Registrations or RSVP due dates. 
  • Scheduled maintenance on MSU grounds or by UIT.  
  • Announcements of faculty or staff appointments or honors. 

Announcements generally appear once in the MSU Today email. If you would like to request that your announcement appear more than once, email [email protected] with the MSU Today announcement's title or ID number and the dates you would like the announcement to appear. 


Events are activities that will occur at a specified time and location. Events include lectures, concerts, receptions and exhibit openings that would be of interest to MSU faculty and staff. Events may also include activities that will create a large presence on campus by non-MSU entities. Submitting an event for MSU Today also posts it to the MSU Calendar. Submitted events should be put on by registered student organizations, by academic and administrative units of MSU or be sponsored by the university.

Items submitted to MSU Today should be written clearly and provide the essential information in one or two well-organized paragraphs. Unclear or hard to understand items may be sent back to person who submitted them for editing and may be excluded from the email.
