Coming tomorrow: A fresh daily newsletter for the UTSW community

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve sent you more than 300 editions of our daily EOC Update and Campus News, filled with information relating to the coronavirus, campus policies, vaccinations, and more. We hope you’ve found the daily format helpful – we’ve been told that it was. So as we explored how to communicate effectively in a more forward-thinking way, we’ve decided to keep the daily format indefinitely, but under a new moniker: Today@UTSW.

We’re excited to launch Today@UTSW tomorrow, June 15. The new daily message will still contain all the critical information you need to stay safe and informed on campus. In addition, there will be more space for the exciting, nonpandemic-related features, events, and information that our community increasingly needs to share as we transition toward our new normal.

Rather than arriving late in the day, Today@UTSW will land in your inbox at 5 a.m., Monday through Friday, with highlights on what is important for you to know for the day ahead. It will have the most important updates at the top, as well as news about our pioneering research, inspiring stories, productivity tips, social media highlights, and more. We hope you’ll consider it a key resource as you plan your activities on campus and virtually.

We are thrilled to share this new vehicle with you and hope you’ll share your thoughts. The newsletter belongs to you! Email us at with your questions, ideas, and feedback.
