UF Administrative Memo
Jane Adams, Vice President for University Relations
Please allow me to introduce the UF Administrative Memo, an improved archival website and internal email distribution system for official campus announcements, business practice updates, regulation notices and other information.
Starting today, the UF Administrative Memo replaces the Deans, Directors, and Department Chairs Memoranda website and listserv. The original DDD email notification system was developed in 1995 based on technology that is now outdated.
Formerly managed by Information Technology, the new UF Administrative Memo system, its procedures and website are now administered by University Relations. Its online home, which includes archives dating back to 1995, can be found at: www.administrativememo.ufl.edu.
Like the DDD emails, the UF Administrative Memos will continue to be distributed to the nearly 3,000 UF employees, who have voluntarily signed up to receive the emails. Feel free to share this memo with others in your office you believe will benefit by receiving the UF Administrative Memo directly by email. Faculty, staff and students with a Gatorlink account can subscribe through the website.
Appropriate use of the UF Administrative Memo remains the same as the DDD. It is a good tool to announce changes to university policies and procedures, changes in personnel at the college dean level and above, and changes to other business practices. All messages must be approved by the appropriate vice president and should be no longer than 300 words.
Information for the UF Administrative Memo should be submitted in Microsoft Word or simple text as an editable email attachment and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow reasonable time for the email message to be processed and distributed.
