ScotMemos is a section on the Inside UCR website where any staff or faculty member can submit an announcement to the campus community. Submissions should contain content of potential interest to staff and faculty, should not include student-specific information, and should not promote organizations or businesses unaffiliated with UCR.

A curated selection of ScotMemos will be included in the Inside UCR Weekly newsletter e-mailed every Wednesday to all staff and faculty.

Please include a title, an optional image (min of 300px and max of 870px wide), and a message of no longer than 200 words. Check for spelling or grammatical errors before submitting.Please do not submit duplicates of a message that has already been posted on the site. Announcements for events on campus should be submitted to the UCR Events Calendar ( and not ScotMemos.

Submissions are subject to moderation and approval and will be reviewed by the end of the next business day. You will be notified by email if your submission is not accepted.
