Recommendations 

This channel can be extremely powerful, educational, and influential. It also has an advantage of being able to breakdown a long or complex message into several digestible pieces or parts. Due to the time commitment of this channel, be sure this is the most appropriate medium for your intended audience. Additionally, users may prefer different formats. Some may prefer online publications while others like tangible handouts like newsletters.

Description:

Newsletters provide information about events to both on-campus and off-campus audiences. The template you use depends upon the nature of your communication, your audience, and where you will display your message.

Strengths:

  • Newsletters are underused but can be very powerful because they are an opportunity to get a lot of information out to an audience.
  • Newsletters are often used for guest speaking events, touring groups, and other off-campus events.
  • Newsletter templates are easy to use.

Challenges:

  • Newsletters can be time consuming simply because it takes a lot to design and write enough content to justify the format.
  • Newsletters can become expensive.

Estimated Cost (verify cost with vendor before ordering):

  • Varies depending on how many pages, single or double sided, black and white or color, binding, total quantity, etc.

Refer to the University Mission and Guideline Library when creating your media in order to inspire, inform, or invite others.


Get the approval or verification that your marketing materials meet the guidelines and policies of the University to move forward.
