The Work West Bulletin

The Work West Bulletin will provide you with the information you need to get through your work week. To more effectively communicate pertinent information, the Work West Bulletin replaces the Daily Report. This bulletin is a visually interactive way to share important dates, deadlines, policy changes, and training information all in one place. The Work West Bulletin will be published weekly on Mondays to all faculty and staff.

Items can be submitted to the bulletin via email: Bulletin announcements (100 words or less) should be submitted by noon on Thursday before the following Monday's publishing date. All other events should be submitted to the official university Events Calendar. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact UCM. We hope that you will find it helpful and informative. We look forward to continuing to improve how we share the great news of UWG with you.
