About

StanEvents & Announcements is the campuswide round-up of University events and announcements for faculty and staff and Warrior Weekly for students. Both newsletters leverage web-based automation technology and provide the opportunity to personalize the user communication experience. Our University has implemented this technology for communications with our faculty, staff and students.

StanNews is the official source of University news, highlighting internal and external coverage. These e-communications provide faculty, staff and students with a concise, consistent and interactive format for campus announcements and news.

Background

The Division of University Advancement, in collaboration with the University Communications Advisory Group and the GREAT Student Communications Workgroup, evaluated and analyzed how we communicate internally as a University. A campuswide survey was conducted to gather additional feedback. Many survey respondents expressed receiving too many campuswide emails, which stifle communication about important topics and events. The survey indicated a weekly email streamlining University news and announcements to faculty and staff is the preferred method of internal University communication.
