Digest Submission Guidelines

This message to all faculty and staff has been approved by Jane Livingston, Associate Vice President and Chief Information Officer.

FSU has been sending out daily digests of updates related to our current remote learning and working environment. The digests include important information from departments and colleges all across the university and have been a go-to resource for keeping the FSU community informed of university operations while we operate remotely.

All colleges and departments are welcome to submit articles to appear in the digest. The digests go out nearly every weekday, one to students and one to employees. To get your message out, follow the instructions below.
