College identity and marketing resources

Looking for the new college identity standards? Need to request website support, graphic design help, promote your program or event, or get a message out to campus?

Communications & Marketing has launched a new web page for employees, designed to be a one-stop resource for campus communications and marketing services. The page will be updated and developed with more information over time, so please bookmark it and check back often:

http://www.shoreline.edu/communications-marketing/

For questions, please contact Martha Lynn, Executive Director of Communications & Marketing (mlynn@shoreline.edu).

New Day At A Glance format

Based on employee feedback from this year’s Convocation, the Day At A Glance (DAAG) daily email has been streamlined into four sections to ensure faculty and staff can more easily find relevant information:

Recent Announcements – You’ll find the most recent “news you can use” at the top of the email, with a link to “see all announcements” if you want to read more campus news. Note that this section will no longer list events – you’ll find all campus event information in the three sections below.

College Calendar – Upcoming campus events will be listed here and will drop off the list once they’ve occurred. You can also click on the “see all college events” button to see additional calendar events.

Employee Calendar – Here you’ll see upcoming internal events that are geared to faculty and staff (such as Campus Updates or professional learning opportunities)

To submit information to the calendar, DAAG, or Shoreline Today (the blog for current students), please use the online submission form.

We hope these formatting changes to the existing Day At A Glance email will better inform staff and faculty about campus happenings. In the coming months, we’ll conduct a survey to assess how the new format is working for you. Please let us know if you have any questions about the new layout.

Thank you,
Communications & Marketing

PIO is now Communications & Marketing

From posters to press releases, billboards to banners, speeches to social media, the work of the Public Information Office (PIO) includes much, much more than providing information to the public. That’s why – effective immediately – PIO is changing its name to Communications & Marketing.

“This new name describes much better the work this group does,” said President Cheryl Roberts. “They’re responsible for every bit of promotion for the college, from advertising, to marketing analysis, to media buying, to speech writing and everything in between. It makes sense to have a name that better encompasses all that they do.”

In the coming months, you’ll see additional changes to the office as Shoreline launches a search for a new Director of Communications & Marketing.

If you have any questions about the services that the Communications & Marketing department provides, please email Mary Brueggeman at mbrueggeman@shoreline.edu. Mary will serve as Public Information Officer and supervisor of the department until the permanent position is filled.

Winter break campus closure signage and messaging

During the winter break campus closure from Dec. 21-25, all campus building entrances will be locked. The following buildings will have closure signage on their entrance doors: 1000, PUB, FOSS (all levels), library, gym, theater and visual arts center. In addition, A-board signage is posted at all three gate entrances, the 5000 building parking lot area, the bus stop, the west side of campus and the gym area.

During the closure, the website will carry a prominent closure notice, social media will reinforce the closure and the main phone number, x4101, will also have a message.

All employees should please confirm that appropriate information is updated on recorded telephone greetings, out-of-office messages on departmental and individual staff telephone extensions, e-mail automatic replies, and visible door or counter signage where needed, to inform current and potential students and the community at large, about the campus closure from Dec. 21-25 in a variety of appropriate modes.

Thank you and please enjoy a safe and restful break next week and all the best of this holiday season!

 

Find Quarter Start Dates Easily

In an effort to make it easier to find quarter start dates on the college website, we’ve changed the way they appear in two locations:

  • shoreline.edu/calendarsquarter-start-dates
    (If you want to see only quarter start dates, just click those words, highlighted in yellow, on the left side of the page)
  • shoreline.edu/enrollment-services
    (Reach this page from any college webpage by clicking “Enrollment Services” in the top navigation menu.)
