Internal email, newsletters and memos help our employees and students across the state stay engaged and informed about news and events critical to their success. University Communications works closely with executive leadership and units across campus to make sure that important information is delivered in a timely manner and with a clear message.
If you are interested in starting a newsletter or sending email about your program, department or unit, please contact Jodi Walker or the marketing and communications manager in your unit. They will help you set goals, identify resources and create a communication strategy that meets your needs and supports the university’s goals and brand.
Internal Email Requests
The University Communications and Marketing team manages internal and external bulk email requests. Whether you need to send a message to all students, faculty or staff, alumni or stakeholders across the country, UCM can assist you in crafting, building and distributing your email.
For assistance developing emails or newsletters for your stakeholders or a target population, contact the marketing and communications manager in your unit for assistance.
If you would like to send a general university communication — including to all students, all staff, all faculty or any combination thereof — please send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request should include:
- The content of the email message
- Who the message is coming from
- The audience you would like to send to
- A deadline for the send
Members of the communications team will evaluate your request and assist you with sending the email. If you have questions, email email@example.com or call 208-885-4295
As a general policy, university-wide emails are reserved for executive-level communications and emergency/immediate-need notifications. For individuals or units wishing to send email regarding upcoming events or other communication, please submit the item to The Daily Register or My UI, the official methods of reaching all employees and students.
