Other campus-wide communication channels

UBC event calendars

If you want to spread the word about an event, consider promoting it via events.ubc.ca or events.ok.ubc.ca and tag for a faculty and staff audience.

Digital signage

If you have a message to communicate that is specific to location, consider using digital signage.

Faculty and Administrative Unit communication channels

Each Faculty and Administrative Unit has its own communication channels. If you are looking to communicate to specific groups of faculty and staff, you may wish to connect with your respective communications and/or marketing team.
