News items can be anything you're trying to let the campus know about from announcements to events. Soon you'll have a folder added to your Cascade department website where such items can be hosted and seen only through a News Brief link from the Doorways. Provide the information to University Communications in a timely matter and let us take care of the rest.
If you want to place information on your website and have it directly linked from News Briefs that's also a possibility. And really is the best way to provide content that you manage. If you have any questions or have a News Brief you'd like displayed contact Chris Albert in University Communications at ext. 8691 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
