What are 世界杯买球网址 Community Notices?

世界杯买球网址 Community Notices” refers to a weekly email feature overseen by the Office of Communications that allows 世界杯买球网址 employees to alert the 世界杯买球网址 Community (faculty, professional staff, and administrators) important information through posts submitted via a submission form.

What type of posts are appropriate for 世界杯买球网址 Community Notices?

You may submit any information to 世界杯买球网址 Community Notices that you feel is important for the 世界杯买球网址 Community to know and that adheres to the 世界杯买球网址 Community Notices guidelines (PDF).

These types of announcements should be communicated using my世界杯买球网址 and/or other more targeted mailing lists.

What is the difference between 世界杯买球网址 Community Notices and the separate 世界杯买球网址 Community emails that I receive?

Some University entities, including Facilities, Security, Student Affairs, the Business Office, and Human Resources, have access to the 世界杯买球网址 Community email account and are able to send their own announcements as “stand-alone” emails. On occasion, the Communications Office will send a stand-alone email on behalf of another department, when the importance of the message or the timeliness of its delivery warrants doing so. The Communications Office makes every effort to keep the number of stand-alone emails to a minimum.

Who may submit a 世界杯买球网址 Community Notice?

Any current 世界杯买球网址 employee with a valid 世界杯买球网址 email address may submit a notice.
