Office of University Relations

Strategic Communications Counsel and Tactical Execution

University Relations provides thoughtful communications planning and execution for messages that call for an institutional response. University Relations also provides tactical communications channels for day-to-day messages.

Mass e-mail

UNI's policy is to limit mass e-mail to the entire university community to those messages approved by University Relations.

E-newsletters

Several e-newsletters are made available to the campus community to communicate important messages in a consistent manner, while avoiding mass e-mail campaigns.

MyUNIverse News - MyUNIverse News is the official source of university announcements to students. Mass e-mail to students will be incorporated into MyUNIverse News. MyUNIverse News is e-mailed to students on Monday mornings during the regular academic year. Deadline for submissions is noon on Friday. The submission page is located at http://www.uni.edu/unionline/.

UNI Online - UNI Online is the official source of university announcements to faculty and staff. Mass e-mail to faculty and staff will be incorporated into UNI Online.

Panther Parent - The Panther Parent e-newsletter is intended for parents and guardians of current students. The e-newsletter is distributed several times throughout the semester and provides university events, deadlines and tips from the UNI Parents Association. 

UNI calendar of events

The UNI calendar of events is the official posting site for UNI events. All UNI events, regardless of audience, should be listed on the calendar, as soon as the event date is known. Posting should be updated immediately as details are finalized. Anyone can add items to the UNI online calendar by visiting the calendar submission form. Items submitted by persons who do not have calendar privileges will be reviewed by an administrator prior to the event being posted to the calendar. The review typically occurs within one business day.
