University Wide Notice Guidelines

On Monday, July 22nd, 2019, The University-Wide Notices will be undergoing an upgrade. All UWN’s will now be published with Microsoft SharePoint and a daily email will be sent with the days published News Posts. The News Posts will be authored directly within SharePoint and will be sent as a News Digest each day that will display a short summary of each News Post and allow you to click on the particular News Posts you’d like to read. Additionally, these New Posts will be available to ready anytime when you “follow” the University-Wide SharePoint site and can be read on any device or browser. You can download the SharePoint app on your Android or iOS device to access the University-Wide Notice SharePoint site anytime.

This change coincides with the upcoming use of the Bulldog News communication SharePoint site to communicate more effectively with students. By utilizing the same system to author and send communications, there is only a need for single set of instructions and understanding needed for those that send these communications.

University-Wide Notices (UWN) is a daily email distribution service maintained by Information Technology Services. This service is intended to notify faculty and staff of current events, special announcements and other Ferris related items. 

All UWNs are subject to approval by ITS staff; ITS reserves the right to NOT distribute messages based on the above criteria as well as any applicable HR policies and procedures.
