About Lane Weekly

Lane Weekly is the official employee newsletter of Lane Community College. It is emailed on Tuesdays to all employees and LCC board members.

Submission Instructions:

  • To contribute news or announcements, fill out the form below and submit no later than 3 p.m. on the Monday before the publication date. Items received after 3 p.m. on Monday cannot be guaranteed of publication the next day. Lane Weekly is published on Tuesdays unless otherwise announced.
  • Write and submit a complete announcement; do not merely forward a link, document, or suggestions.
  • Submissions are limited to 150 words to provide readers with a quick, concise read. If you feel more text is critical to reader understanding, include a URL in the Requests to Editor field, or email the editor at weekly@lanecc.edu.
  • If you have changes after you have submitted your information, or after it has been published, resubmit new information in full, and make a note in the Requests to Editor field that the new submission is to replace the previous submission.
  • If you have links or URLs, list them in the Requests to Editor field with the key words to be linked. Example: Weekly COPPS procedure https://www.lanecc.edu/copps/documents/lane-weekly. Do not submit shortened URLs; the publishing software cannot read them.
  • Submissions can be repeated up to four times per term upon request. Include which four dates you want in the Requests to Editor field.
  • Attach photos when possible. Submit only gif, jpg, jpeg, or png files. If you have a PDF, resave it as a jpeg and submit that. Do not submit formatted Word documents with inserted graphics.
