PDQ Pulse

The PDQ Pulse is a twice-weekly e-newsletter intended to deliver information on upcoming events and other key announcements to students, faculty and staff at Roger Williams University. Some news highlights are included along with events and announcements.

All currently enrolled day undergraduate students and currently employed faculty and staff receive the PDQ Pulse via their RWU email addresses – there is no opt-out process.

Students, faculty and staff – particularly those who organize campus events with broad appeal – are encouraged to submit their event information via the Submit an Event form. Events are posted on the University Events calendar at PDQ@RWU and will appear in the PDQ Pulse in the edition immediately preceeding the event.

Students, faculty and staff are also encouraged to submit campus announcements via the Submit a Campus Announcement form. Announcements are posted on the Campus Announcements page at PDQ@RWU and will appear in the PDQ Pulse in the next edition.

The PDQ Pulse is delivered on Monday and Thursday afternoons each week. All events and announcements submissions must be received before 12:00 noon on the day of distribution to guarantee inclusion in the respective edition of the PDQ Pulse.

During Summer and Winter Intersession periods, the PDQ Pulse is delivered only once a week due to the limited number of University Events and Campus Announcements during these periods. The weekly edition of the PDQ Pulse will be delivered on Thursday afternoons each week. The PDQ Pulse will include all upcoming events scheduled from Friday through the following Thursday, as well as any Campus Announcements submitted since the previous PDQ Pulse distribution. All events and announcements submissions must be received before 12:00 noon on Thursdays to guarantee inclusion in the PDQ Pulse.
