Submitting an Item for the Provost’s Friday Update:

Beginning in October 2023, the Friday Update will be moving to a semimonthly publication schedule, rather than weekly, and the Update will come out on the first and third Fridays of each month. You’ll find the Update schedule towards the bottom of the page.

The Provost’s Update has been re-imagined for the 2023 Fall Semester and now includes a new Advancing 2030 Plan Priorities section that highlights accomplishments and announcements relating to the following 2030 focus areas: Student Success; Curricular Innovation; Research Advancement; Inclusion and Diversity; and Workforce and Community.

Submissions from the UWM campus community will be included in this new Advancing 2030 Plan Priorities section and should fall into one of the categories – see below. We are coordinating with Marketing and Communications, and you can submit your items for the Provost’s Update by visiting the Marketing & Communications Submissions page and selecting the Campus Announcements form.

As you are filling out the form, check “Yes, Please submit my submission to the Provost’s Office” under “Notify the Provost’s Office” so your submission will be forwarded to us. You will then be prompted to check the 2030 priority/priorities that are most applicable to your submission (please select all that apply). You can see the example below:Sample of Notifying the Provost's Office & related 2030 Plan priorities with checkboxes
