SUBMISSION INFORMATION: The Southeast Newswire is brought to you as a service from the University's News Bureau. The Newswire is distributed on Tuesdays and Fridays for the faculty and staff of Southeast Missouri State University. Individuals who would like to have announcements considered for inclusion in the Newswire should submit entries to http://news.semo.edu/newswire-submission-form/ by noon on Monday for Tuesday's Newswire and by noon on Thursday for Friday's Newswire. Submissions after these deadlines will be postponed until the next scheduled Newswire.
