The Academic Affairs Newsletter is an internal SharePoint site featuring all of the submitted events, activities, and happenings in Academic Affairs. It is published on Tuesdays and features a page with general division information, a page for information most relevant to faculty and staff, and a page for information most relevant to currently enrolled students.

In conjunction with the AA Newsletter, the Academic Affairs Weekly Roundup email is sent on Tuesdays to feature those news, events, and happenings with dates or deadlines during the upcoming week. There are two versions of the weekly roundup—one for all faculty and staff, and one for currently enrolled students.
