A friendly reminder that Chancellor Horrell will discuss our collective work in shaping CU Denver’s future at the State of the Campus at 3:30 this afternoon, in the Lola & Rob Salazar Student Wellness Center Gym, and we hope each and every one of you can attend. She’ll share our progress on campus-wide strategic priorities, challenges for the year ahead, and outline the role we all play in propelling CU Denver forward as a vital asset of the city. There will be snacks, and all attendees will receive a free, one-day pass to the Student Wellness Center. It’s a win for everyone.

While I have your attention (with free snacks and gym passes), I’d also like to make sure all faculty and staff are aware of two new resources for helping you promote your initiatives within the university. Many of you have heard about the University Communications team’s new submission form for requesting help promoting work coming out of departments, units, labs, student organizations or other CU Denver-affiliated organizations. This is the place to go when you have story ideas or completed articles to share, news items for external media, event postings, and social media posts that you’d like to get more exposure. Many of you worked with specific UComm folks in the past, but this is the best one-stop way to make sure that all the different divisions working at the University level have a chance to promote your news via social media, the CU Denver website, system-wide AND external media venues.

In addition, I would like to make everyone aware of a brand-new submission form (just developed this week, scroll down on the page) within CLAS for faculty, staff and students looking for assistance with projects related to marketing, communication and outreach – projects like developing marketing strategies or building on existing plans for department and/or program promotion, creating brochures and other printed materials (including swag), photography and video collateral development, large event coordination, and making sure all our efforts stay brand compliant. This is the place to go when you are looking to promote any entity within the college and you need a hand making sure your efforts are well organized and look professional.

Ultimately, we all work together to make this university great – and to make sure everyone knows about all the great work we are doing. I encourage you to do what you can to help promote CU in the City and our college’s prominent position in it.
