Communicating with faculty and staff
Working at UBC page on UBC.ca
If you have a university-wide message tailored to faculty and staff, you may want to share it via the Working at UBC page on UBC.ca. This page communicates:
- Timely news and updates
- Events (events inputted into the UBCevents calendar and tagged with ‘audience – faculty staff’ are showcased here)
- Important resources and contacts
- Achievements and recognition
- Stories about faculty and staff
You can submit content or story ideas to the Working at UBC page by completing this form.
Working at UBC newsletter
New information posted to the Working at UBC page on UBC.ca is compiled into a newsletter and sent out to subscribed faculty and staff every two weeks.
Subscribe to the Working at UBC newsletter.
Each UBC Faculty and unit has its own communication channels – you may wish to connect with your respective communications and/or marketing team.
If you are based on the Okanagan campus, we recommend reaching out to the University Relations team.
If you want to spread the word about an event, consider promoting it via the UBCevents calendar.
You can also promote your event via newspaper, radio and TV community calendars. See a listing of community calendars and tips on getting your event included.
