The Faculty/Staff Daily Digest is automatically delivered across all campuses to all UConn faculty, staff, graduate students, and UConn Foundation employees at 11 am every weekday (with the exception of certain holidays, listed below). This publication contains the most current UConn Today headlines, human resources reminders, and important University-wide messages and announcements. Faculty and staff can also submit announcements for events, award nominations, calls for research participants, campus fundraisers, and more.
