Purpose, Policies and Guidelines
ClarkYOU is an internal communications vehicle for Clark University . Its priorities are to inform a diverse faculty, staff and student body of University news, upcoming events, and the personal and professional accomplishments of faculty and staff. It serves as an important vehicle for general news and announcements from the Human Resources Office. Campus Digest also communicates work-related announcements from departments on campus, and may include general announcements from a variety of campus sources that may be of special interest to members of our community.
It's important to note that ClarkYOU will not run announcements submitted by alumni, unless they are regarding Clark-sponsored activities; nor will it run announcements from businesses, agencies, organizations, or persons not affiliated through partnership or sponsorship with the Clark family.
Currently, ClarkYOU is divided into the following categories:
- Campus News and Events
- Faculty and Staff Notes
- Student News
At the discretion of the Campus Digest editor, news and announcements posted to ClarkYOU:
- May be revised and/or edited for clarity, grammar and Clark style
- Will be assigned a category (listed above)
You are welcome to upload a igital photo with your post —JPEGs only, low resolution preferred. PDFs are not able to be uploaded.
Campus News and Events —This Campus News category includes significant news items or announcements of broad appeal and those that connect with the University five pillars. It will also include accomplishments from the Clark Community; and periodic messages from senior leadership.

Marketplace — Marketplace is a free forum for Clark employees who would like to advertise personal items they would like to sell, rent or give away.
