Criteria for internal media—inclusion in the People section of Brief
Brief and other University publications and news sources strive to recognize individuals for outstanding achievement. The People section of Brief is for those awards, appointments, and other announcements heavily focused on an individual, and suitable for an audience primarily consisting of faculty and staff.
Please see U Awards for specific awards that Brief/People will feature. Exceptions may include some student and alumni awards including students who are Rhodes, Marshall, and Truman Scholars. Brief/People particularly highlights faculty, P&A employees, Civil Service employees, and Bargaining Unit employees for outstanding contributions. These are guidelines only, and we encourage you to submit awards that may not be listed here for potential publication, subject to the editor's discretion.
Appointments to be featured include those individuals who are on the payroll—faculty and staff. People featured usually include faculty, dean designation or above, executive administration, or an appointment that touches all colleges/departments in its function—for example, a director of equity and diversity.
