The Weekly Bulletin

Weekly Bulletin

The Weekly Bulletin is an e-newsletter which is circulated to all employees every Monday afternoon. It is used to keep you updated on issues that are important to the University.  It launched on Monday 26 January 2015.

In October 2020 we introduced a new format of the Weekly Bulletin that enables the commenting on and liking of articles, as well as a new and improved look. Do let us know what you think of it, and get in touch with internalcomms@exeter.ac.uk if you have any detailed feedback or accessiblity issues.

In the Weekly Bulletin you can read about individual/team successes, the progress of specific projects, updates from the Colleges, Services and each campus, IT and e-learning news, links to forthcoming events, training and development opportunities; and the jobs that are currently being advertised at the University.

In addition to this, we hope the Weekly Bulletin will reduce the amount of ‘all staff’ emails which are circulated around the campuses.

You can find all previous editions of the Weekly Bulletin available to view on our online archive

The process

The Weekly Bulletin is circulated to all employees (via email) every Monday afternoon. All text included in a Weekly Bulletin needs to be submitted to the internal communications team in the week before publication; at the latest by 5pm on the Thursday.

All articles are edited to fit size and house style, the word count for articles is 150 words, and we welcome submissions of images alongside content.

The internal communications team produces the Weekly Bulletin on Friday afternoons and Monday mornings. We cannot guarantee to include articles in the next issue if the text is not received by 5pm on a Thursday.

We often receive a high number of submissions and decisions on inclusion are based on the number of articles we have that week and other key update priortites. 

A specific edition is produced for Cornwall based staff - all content for this edition should also be sent to the Internal Communications team. 

The Weekly Bulletin is not intended to replace any face-to-face consultation/update meetings but instead should be used to complement the face-to-face communication methods already being used at the University.

Deadlines

Please send us your news at any time in the week prior to publication, and at the very latest by 5pm each Thursday. The Weekly Bulletin comes out on the following Monday afternoon. When a Bank Holiday occurs the Weekly Bulletin will be circulated on the Tuesday. We will let you know in advance any changes to deadlines via the Weekly Bulletin.
