Putting Your News and Events in “IUP Daily” and the “Beak”

IUP Daily, the e-mail newsletter for all employees of IUP,  features news from throughout the university, compiled from the news feeds of the 170 departments, offices, and other units that have websites hosted at www.iup.edu. The Beak, IUP’s daily e-mail newsletter for students, also features such items, including news of main interest to students, and is sent to all registered IUP students every weekday morning while classes are in session (except summer).

Also featured are upcoming events from IUP’s Central Calendar, IUP press releases, and a community Bulletin Board, through which employees can post advertisements about upcoming events, items for sale, and more. See IUP Daily Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Putting Your News in IUP Daily and/or the Beak

All items in IUP Daily and the Beak come from the IUP website. Items for the News, For Employees, and Faculty and Staff Stars sections come from department and office news posts on their individual websites. To have an item included, you have two options:

  • Ask your unit’s web maintainer to post it. See a list of department and office web maintainers.
  • Do it yourself. 
    • If you are not a site maintainer:
      • Go to your unit website’s News page (for example, if you’re in the English Department, go to the department’s website and then to its News page) and follow the link “Suggest a News Item for This Page” on the right side. Find a more detailed explanation here: How to Suggest a News Item.
    • Or, if you are a site maintainer, you can submit the news item yourself from within the CMS.

You will need the following to suggest a news item:

  • Your IUP user name and password, as you will need to log in to make the post.
  • If you are off campus when suggesting a news item, you will first need to be connected to the IUP network via the Virtual Private Network. Find instructions on using the VPN.

Remember that one of the approvers for your department or office website will need to approve your submission before it is published to the website.

Putting Your Event in IUP Daily and/or the Beak

Events listed in the calendar or Coming Up sections of IUP Daily and the Beak come from the Central Calendar. So, to put your event in the newsletters’ calendar sections, you need to put it on the Central Calendar.

Ask your department or office web maintainer to post the event to your website’s calendar with the taxonomy of “Central Calendar.”

Not sure who your web maintainer is? Check the list of web maintainers (login required).

Where Else News and Events Go

Putting your news and events in IUP Daily and the Beak is only part of the return on your investment. By placing these items on your website, you are also automatically doing the following:

  • Updating your website’s home page
  • Placing your news and events on high-traffic webpages, such as News and Events, Campus Bulletins, and the Central Calendar
  • Putting your news into several RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds for broader reach
  • Putting your news in front of the Media Relations director for potential media coverage

How to Place an Ad on IUP’s Bulletin Board

The Bulletin Board is similar to the classified ads section of a newspaper, but for IUP employees only. Employees can use it to sell or give away items, search for needed items, and promote community causes or other non-IUP events. Find information on approved uses of the Bulletin Board under Bulletin Board policies.

Submit your Bulletin Board posting by completing this online form. Note that you will need the following:

  • Your IUP user name and password, as you will need to log in to make the post.
  • If you are off campus when posting to the Bulletin Board, you will first need to be connected to the IUP network via the Virtual Private Network. Find instructions on using the VPN.

Note that you will need to place content in the first three sections, “Title,” “Lead,” and “Continuation,” for the online form to work.
