Editorial Policy
Bulletin articles are selected for their relevance and interest to readers. The Bulletin editor works with the staff of College Relations and other members of the campus community to develop content according to the following criteria:

  • A commitment to providing balanced and timely coverage of issues.
  • A commitment to offering readers a mix of newsworthy, engaging, and thought-provoking articles about the college, its academic programs, and its employees.
  • A commitment to diversity of interest, opinion, and representation.
  • A respect and concern for the institution’s history, mission, and values.

The Bulletin is not an appropriate communication tool for:

  • Specialized information for a narrow audience such as an individual academic department or administrative unit, etc.
  • Commercial or personal announcements, such as rental property, private-business offerings, sale of items to third parties, birth announcements, etc.
  • News from other organizations or campuses that does not directly pertain to Buffalo State faculty and staff.

The editor encourages suggestions for articles but makes no assurances regarding the use of suggested or provided material. College Relations will not disseminate messages or material that is of questionable taste, has the potential to be divisive, or does not advance the mission of the college.

The Bulletin neither accepts nor publishes paid advertisements.
