Items are not posted on Saturday or Sunday except for Safety Alerts. Items to be posted on Monday must be received by 5 p.m. the previous Friday. Submissions are automatically removed after an event has passed. Please note that due to the volume of postings we receive we cannot re-post items. Academic events are also listed in the calendar box to the right of the postings to give them greater visibility and so that you can quickly see lectures, concerts, gallery shows and other events related to our lives as scholars.
