Tech Times is the internal e-newsletter for faculty, staff and students at Tennessee Tech. In an effort to keep the content relevant to different groups, there are separate daily issues for staff and faculty and for students. Tech Times contains news, announcements and other items of campus-wide interest.
The Office of Communications & Marketing sends Tech Times each weekday morning. If there are no announcements on a particular day, no newsletter will be distributed. Submission deadlines are:
You may submit an item for distribution several days in advance. If you want an item to run more than once, you must make a separate entry for each day.
Tech Times is not issued on university holidays unless special circumstances warrant.
Each submission is reviewed for content and either approved or deleted. Submitters should write concise copy and provide a link or telephone number for more information.
Make sure your submission includes all relevant information, is grammatically correct, is timely, and is appropriate for the TTU audience. Otherwise it may not be included in Tech Times.
