The weekly UNE Community Notices email is sent to all faculty and professional staff members on Friday afternoon. It includes news, upcoming events, opportunities, and deadlines at UNE. This email is not distributed to students. (If you wish to communicate information to students, please contact the Office of Student Affairs.)
To submit an announcement for Community Notices, please complete the submission form by Friday at noon. Submissions received after 12 p.m. will be reviewed by the Office of Communications for inclusion in the following week’s notices.
Please be sure to include the title, full details (date/time/location etc.) as well as contact information. Note that attachments are not supported by the submission form (but URLs may be added to the body of the submission) and that only plain text is permissible (formatting is not supported).
Please note: As the result of the coronavirus pandemic, there are an increasing number of time-sensitive notices that would be helpful for the University community to be aware of. In addition to the usual Friday afternoon UNE Community Notices, we will also distribute more frequent UNE Community Notice dedicated solely to announcements regarding news and events that have arisen as the result of the COVID-19 outbreak. We ask that faculty and staff continue to use the submission form to apprise us of announcements, such as University-related event cancellations, changes in hours of operation, etc. Please note that if an announcement is published expeditiously Monday through Thursday, it will not be republished in the weekly Friday notice unless resubmitted.

University WordPress Sites
The new UNE-branded sites include an easy-to-learn content management system that allows site publishers autonomously manage and instantly publish content to their sites. The sites are available to all current faculty and professional staff for the purpose of showcasing their research, academic interests, and UNE-related work. The sites are expected to amplify faculty work to internal and external audiences with content that augments www.une.edu and other University digital platforms. To learn more visit sites.une.edu.

Public Relations Strategist
Working across a variety of social media channels, the Office of Communications helps to define and strengthen the University's image. We highlight the work being done in UNE's various academic programs, showcase UNE's partnerships with various community organizations, celebrate the accomplishments of UNE students and faculty, laud the rich life beyond the classroom that UNE students enjoy, and share news of upcoming events and activities.
While much of the work the Office of Communications does to promote UNE's brand on social media occurs at the institutional level, we recognize that you may wish to communicate on a departmental or program-specific social media channel with your constituents. To facilitate this, we offer consulting services to help you get started, develop content, and build an audience. Prior to setting up UNE social media accounts, please get in touch with Social Media Strategist Louise Coburn to discuss UNE’s social media policy and best practices.
