Beak Guidelines

  • The following guidelines govern the Beak, IUP’s daily e-mail newsletter for students:


    • Any recognized student organization can submit news or events using the submission form.
    • Faculty and staff members submit news via their regular website. If academic departments or IUP offices submit news via the student form, it will be rejected.
    • The Beak is for the use of IUP and its recognized student organizations only. It is not for purposes of solicitation by outside companies or business firms.
    • Any news or events that do not meet these guidelines will not be posted. Due to the volume of submissions, we are not always able to provide detailed feedback on why an item does not meet the guidelines.


    • All students get the Beak via their university e-mail account. There is no unsubscribe option for students.
    • Faculty and staff members, prospective students, and other interested parties are invited to subscribe. Non-students may unsubscribe at any time.

    Publication Schedule

    • The Beak is distributed at 10:00 a.m. each weekday morning while classes are in session.
    • When a holiday falls on Monday, the Beak may not appear until Tuesday.
