Introducing Student Weekly
This fall, the university community will have a new way to communicate with students. Developed by student affairs, Student Weekly provides current students with key information in one convenient email, streamlining communications by reducing the quantity of unique emails being sent and driving students to the website for more information.
Student Weekly includes the top opportunities, events and news stories of the week, plus a listing of upcoming important dates. Featuring an intuitive and mobile-friendly format, this newsletter is an effective new channel of communication, leading to an enhanced student experience at the U of M.
Three versions of Student Weekly have been developed: one for undergraduate students/Fort Garry Campus, sent Wednesdays; one for undergraduate students/Bannatyne/William Norrie Campuses, sent Thursdays; and one for graduate students (sent Wednesdays). The graduate edition will replace the current weekly awards email and will continue to maintain a primary focus on awards, while also incorporating events, workshops, opportunities, news, upcoming courses and reminders.
To submit your news items, send an email to studentnews [at] umanitoba [dot] ca. Put “SW” plus your heading in the subject (e.g. “SW – Launch of Student Weekly”). Please include: A one-to-two sentence description of your item with the date, time and location (if applicable); a URL linking to more information; indicate whether it is for undergraduate, graduate or all students; and specify the relevant campus(es). To be considered for a particular week, submissions are due the Monday before at 9:00 a.m. Although not all announcements will be featured in Student Weekly, it will include links to the full listing of events on the online calendar as well as the university’s online news site (soon to come).
