Use this form to submit a news tip, share your prepared story content or tell us about your research. We're looking for announcements of interest to our campus and stories that enrich our community.
Our editorial schedule focuses on the following content themes throughout the week (events are not tied to a particular day of the week):
- Monday: Academics and involvement
- Tuesday: Find your local news; cross-campus initiatives
- Wednesday: Campus life and work-life
- Thursday: Campus operations, safety and compliance information
- Friday: Celebrate; Athletics; in case you missed it; top stories of the week
The CU Boulder Today email digest generally publishes five days a week during the academic year (student, graduate student and faculty-staff editions) and on a more limited schedule during holidays, breaks and the summer. We also deliver a weekly community edition to external audiences and a COVID-19 edition.
Our editors collaborate on the entire spectrum of channels at CU Boulder and will help find the best time and place to share your story.
Submission Guidelines for CU Boulder Today
Preferred publish date: Help us understand your timeline for sharing this information. If you have specific deadlines (a register-by date, for example) please make sure to note these in the notes field of the form. While we make every effort to accommodate requested dates, the editors reserve the right to use discretion regarding publish dates and slotting content with the above themes in mind. Publishing typically involves a combination of posting on the website and subsequently running content, as appropriate, in the email editions; all steps in this process do not necessarily occur on the same day. Your preferred publish date is the date of posting on the website. If you are publicizing an event, do not put the event's date in the preferred publish date field.
Attach a document: When you attach your content as a document to the form, you can simply note "see attachment(s)" in the fom. We often cannot pull text from PDF documents.
Photo: CU Boulder Today relies on quality photos to help tell your story. If there is a preferred photo, please include the high-resolution image (minimum width of 1,000 pixels, preferably 2,000 pixels) with your submission. No screenshots. Horizontal photos with an editorial perspective are preferred whenever possible. Please keep in mind the image will be displayed in a variety of crops and sizes across the CU Boulder Today website.
If no art is submitted or the asset does not meet our editorial standards, Strategic Relations and Communications staff will select or replace the art at our discretion. If there are smaller images you would like to include in the body of the text, they should have a minimum size of 300 x 300 pixels for best results. Inappropriate or off-topic assets will cause your submission to be rejected. Please also make sure you have the rights to use the image you select. Visit our photography database for a wide variety of pre-approved campus images.
