Every Friday, CIT publishes the email newsletter IT@Cornell Weekly Bulletin, which goes to all IT staff at Cornell. The articles are also posted on the IT@Cornell News page.

Submit a Story or an Idea

Topics that are covered in IT@Cornell News include:

  • service updates and announcements
  • leadership, training, and professional development opportunities for IT staff
  • IT-related events
  • profile and story ideas about IT staff
  • case studies about how IT helped solve a problem or improve a process

Email the IT communication team with your own story or suggest an idea.

IT@Cornell Events

All events listed on the IT@Cornell Events page have been submitted through the Cornell events calendar.

Any event that is open to IT@Cornell staff across campus, or any IT-related events organized by IT staff and open to the public, can be listed on the calendars. These includes conferences, workshops, forums, networking events, special interest groups (SIGs), and campus-wide trainings for IT services. Meetings or small private groups should not be publicized through the Cornell and IT@Cornell calendars.

Add an Event Yourself

You need to have admin privileges to the Cornell events calendar in order to get your event posted on both the Cornell events calendar and the IT@Cornell Events page. (Ask the Cornell events calendar team about getting admin privileges.)

When you're signed in with admin privileges, you'll see additional fields that aren't visible on the standard form for entering events. In the Tags field, enter IT@Cornell. The IT@Cornell events calendar will take a few minutes to pull from the Cornell events calendar, but no further action is needed from you.

(Under custom fields, ignore the IT@Cornell Service Node field. In the future, that will be used to associate events with specific IT services.)
