News Item

The News Item product presents time-sensitive content, as opposed to an "evergreen" Article.

Evergreen content that was previously added as News Items should be polished and added as Articles instead. The Article can then be featured on the web or included in digital communication when needed. News Items should not summarize or duplicate existing Articles.

News Items should be original content, and should not aggregate external news.

Examples of News Item Topics

  • Pest/disease/etc. alerts
  • Summaries of recent Penn State studies
  • Analysis of current seasonal conditions or trends
  • Review of new technology or latest research
