Communication and marketing services
We offer communication and marketing services to help you promote your programs, events, and services. A member of our team will work closely with you to determine the types of collateral that will best meet your marketing objectives, and create a project outline to determine details and deliverables.
submit a Request for service
Briefly tell us what your working on and one of our team members will get in touch!
Don't worry about being too detailed or requesting a specific service.
Let us know what you're working on, including the event date or project deadline. One of our team members will review your request and prepare a communication and marketing outline using their expertise to identify deliverables that best match your project or event.
Website development and support
Request a web update
If you require a web update, please send an email to email@example.com.
A few things to note:
- include in your subject line: Route to Rady FHS
(your request will reach us a lot quicker if you do)
- include a link to the page that needs changes
- provide details on what should be changed
It's important to note UM web best practices, the type of content we post, and how we handle specific content (ex. linking attachments) have all changed since we've moved to a new web platform.
Request for new webpage or website
Requests for college, department, unit, or centre webpage development can be made through a support ticket following the same steps outlined in the tab above. A member of our team will review your request to see what we can offer and get in touch with you.
Please note the faculty does not support the development of research lab, research group, or personal research websites (this does not include department level researcher profiles).
With the launch of our new websites, we have the ability to view analytics on faculty and college webpages. For more information or to request basic analytics for a specific page, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to provide a link to the page you're inquiring about.
Event and news promotion
There are a few different options available, depending on the type of event or news you'd like to promote and the intended audience.
UM events calendar
All Rady Faculty colleges, departments and units can post upcoming events on the UM events calendar with this self-serve option.
To request user access or training (including a refresher), please contact central IST directly through the IST Service Desk (not the Rady communications office).
Rady weekly events email: broad audience and public events posted to the health sciences, or a college specific category will be captured in the weekly events listing email. More info on the weekly email can be found below.
Rady weekly events and news email
This weekly email includes all upcoming seminar series, guest speakers, workshops and more, along with our latest news stories. We compile upcoming events that are listed in the university-wide online events calendar.
Promote your event in the Rady Faculty news and events email
If you have an upcoming event, you will have to post it in the events calendar. Each college/department/unit/centre is responsible for posting their events into the calendar.
If you are unsure if anyone in your college/department/unit/centre has already taken training, please email email@example.com to get a list of all user accounts with access to your area's calendar category.
Subscribe or change your subscription options
If you are interested in receiving our weekly events email (which includes upcoming seminar series, guest speakers, workshops and more) you can click below to subscribe. If you decide you no longer want to receive emails, you can use the same button to unsubscribe.
How to unsubscribe from listservs
Our emails are distributed using the FHS-ALL listserv. This distribution list pulls subscribers from a collection of departmental lists - recipients are not subscribed to FHS-ALL, which means our office cannot remove you from this specific list. If you self-subscribed to FHS-ALL-Others you can manage your subscription options using the button above.
If you no longer want to receive the events newsletter or notices from FHS-ALL, view the mailing lists page to unsubscribe – find your college/department/unit and follow the instructions.
If you are having trouble using the lists or have a question, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
