There is a variety of ways to share news and information about upcoming events with the campus community.
The Campus Events Calendar is populated through the EMS system used by event organizers to reserve space on campus. For more information, contact Graig Eichler.
Campus Connection is a virtual bulletin board where Student Association clubs post events. College departments can share events there, too; email Bill Harcleroad for access. Items submitted to Campus Connection are automatically included in the Weekly Broadcast events listing, which is emailed on Mondays to all students, as well as faculty and staff subscribers. More information about advertising events on Campus Connection is available here.
Corq is an events calendar for mobile devices. A free download for iOS and Android, Corq automatically syncs with Campus Connection to give users up-to-the-minute information about what’s happening on campus now and what’s scheduled weeks or even months in advance. It’s easy and intuitive, with scrollable, color-coded entries, and filters to find events in different categories like “Athletics” and “Arts & Music.” Putting this Corq badge on your promotional posters or flyers will encourage others to get the app and help drive traffic to your event.
Electronic signs: Events submitted to the Campus Connection are included on the signboards outside Wilsbach and Fine Arts. Items must be submitted at least 10 days in advance. For more information, contact Bill Harcleroad. To advertise an event on the electronic sign outside the Hunt Union, contact Robb Thibault.
The myOneonta portal includes announcements that can be targeted toward students, faculty/staff or both. Departments that do not have staff authorized to post portal announcements may send items to Elaine Lowe.
The Daily Bulletin is a news blog for faculty and staff. Submit items to email@example.com. With the exception of items referencing events that have already occurred, all items submitted to the Bulletin will appear in the weekly Bulletin email, which is distributed mid-week to all employees.
The sending of mass email to campus-wide listservs (for example, all employees or all students) is restricted to authorized users. Here is the process for pursuing authorization:
- Identify the listserv(s) to which you wish to send email (e.g., ALL_EMPLOYEES, ENROLLED_STUDENTS, etc.).
- Send an email stating “I request access allowing the [email account name] to send to [listserv(s)]” to the Cabinet-level administrator of your unit, who may approve or decline your request.
- For you to gain authorization, the Cabinet-level administrator of your unit (or designee thereof) must grant approval via email to the IT Service Desk, Cced to you and the Office of Communications.
- If your Cabinet-level administrator approves your request, the IT Service Desk will generate a ticket for appropriate Information Technology Services staff to execute your request, and then close the ticket afterward; also, the Office of Communications will follow up with you to provide guidance on mass email functionality and best practices.
