Student Communications 101

Individuals, departments and student organizations are responsible for promoting their events and activities to students and the JWU community, and providing appropriate updates, reminders and news.

Utilizing as many university resources as possible is important. Do not rely on just one channel. Use more than one to optimize the reach and exposure of your messaging including:

  • jwuLink

  • JWU Mobile App

  • JWU Events Calendar (This Week at JWU uses this events calendar to populate content)

  • JWU Social Media

  • JWU Wildcat Greetings Email

  • Digital Signage

Derek Lavoie, communications specialist, prepared a Student Communications 101 guide to help the community through the process of promoting an event or activity to JWU students. This resource can also be found in JWU Gateway under Common Resources > Resources > Student Communications 101.
