Event and News Promotion
Every day, the GC community is conducting groundbreaking research, winning significant awards and grants, publishing renowned books, and hosting thought-provoking events. Below is a step-by-step guide to promoting your news and events.
Your first step is to post your event on the GC Calendar. Events included in the GC Calendar must take place at the GC. Request your program/office's web editor add it into Drupal. If they are unfamiliar, share the Drupal/CMS Resources page and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for CMS training.
Be sure to also review our rules and best practices for news and events. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the rejection of your event submission.
Raise awareness of your event with a flyer. Flyer templates are available in the GC's Brand Guide. After creating your flyer, post it on the bulletin board of the Dining Commons, in program offices, and hand them out to potential attendees and interested parties.
The GC has digital signage throughout the building - decide which locations will help promote your event to your intended audience the best and submit to the digital signage owners. View digital signage guidelines, best practices, locations, and owner's contact info on the Digital Signage page.
- Submit to be included in the elevator posters of events.
Elevator posters for events happening in the GC are posted monthly when classes are in session. Events must be on the GC Calendar in order to be considered. Submit your event to email@example.com, subject "Elevator Posters" for consideration. Due to limited space, not all events will be included.
- Request the GC to share it on social.
Fill out the Share via Social Media form to request C&M share your event.
