Event Promotion

The Communications office assists departments and programs with publicizing events to internal and external audiences.

Channels

  • UO Events Calendar (http://calendar.uoregon.edu/): UO’s starting point for publicizing all UO events open to the public in Eugene and Portland. Departments can post directly to the calendar. We provide a guide to help departments get started, and can provide guidance if there are any questions about this. Review our tips on how to make your calendar entry as effective as possible. Events entered by department staff into the UO events calendar can get additional exposure on the “Upcoming Events” feed on the College of Design homepage, and the “Events” section on each department’s landing page.
  • Upcoming Events (e-mail): a weekly opt-in digest of the upcoming events affiliated with the college. This information is compiled from events entered into the UO event calendar that fall within a two-week window of the send date. The digest is emailed to college faculty and staff, current students as well as the Dean’s Advancement Council, Eugene and Southern Oregon art/design and architecture audiences, and our Portland art and design and architecture lists (~2,800). See our instructions to be included in the upcoming events email.
  • Digital displays (in Lawrence Hall and Portland): Departments and programs can post event information on digital displays (i.e. Plasmas) in Lawrence Hall and at the White Stag Building in Portland at no charge. We provide departments with marketing templates and specs.
  • Social Media: High-priority events, announcements, and news can be  posted to the College’s Facebook Departments and programs are responsible for posting their events to their own social media accounts. See social media guidelines.
