Revamped Case Daily to launch today

After requesting reader feedback, Case Western Reserve University is unveiling a new version of its weekday e-mail newsletter to internal audiences. The office of University Marketing and Communications will launch a sharp and swift version of Case Daily February 12.

Nearly 600 members of the university community responded to a survey of Case Daily readers conducted by University Marketing and Communications. Of those responding, nearly 50 percent were students—undergraduate, graduate and professional. About 44 percent were staff and more than 10 percent were faculty.

In response to survey results, Case Daily is becoming a two-column newsletter with photos, enhanced graphics, and a news sidebar, plus access to a more robust calendar section. This format allows readers to more quickly scan university news and information.
