With the exception of student organization requests, targeted announcements must be submitted directly to University Communications and Marketing (UCM) at email@example.com. UCM will obtain approval of the request by the executive officer (EO) of the requestor's division. Student organization requests must first be submitted to the organizations advisor.
Additional approvals by the Office of the University Registrar may be necessary in cases where the university must ensure compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which is the federal mandate that protects the privacy of student education records and outlines the process for each university to define student directory information.
*Reminder: If your request does not meet one of the designated criteria, it will be channeled to another outlet for dissemination. UCM will notify the requestor if an alternative outlet is identified as the appropriate medium.
The role of this unit is to provide a preliminary review of requests, make an initial decision about the most appropriate communication vehicle and, eventually, prepare and release the information in the agreed upon manner.
Upon receipt, UCM will review a request for criteria appropriateness.
If appropriate for submission as a targeted/personal announcement:
If inappropriate, UCM will notify the requestor of the alternative outlet that will be used to disseminate the information.
