On-Campus Publicity

Within the Office of University Relations, communications take two forms: print and electronic.

Electronic Communications

Electronic communications are overseen by Web Communications, in conjunction with the Web Services team. In addition to all web content including site specific content, Web Communications also oversees:
  • Publicity information included within the University Calendar
    • Submit online at, the University's space reservation system, because you can't have an event without reserving a space. Just log in, request your space and fill in the description box at the end of the form to get the word out. Check out BookIt policies and procedures.
  • University communications (including evites)
    • Official invitations about high-profile events are managed according to the university's Evite Policy.
    • University Relations also has a policy on blast emails
  • Today@UMass Lowell
    • News and information websites for faculty/staff and students with a daily email. Students and faculty/staff can submit announcements online. Make Today@UMass Lowell your home page to get all the latest campus news and announcements.
  • Featured Stories, written by our staff of "beat writers," appear on and also provide the basis for content for featured news on Today@UMass Lowell, NewsLine, college and department newsletters, and the university's award-winning Alumni Magazine. 
  • Social media, including the university's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites, and blogs
  • Hawki monitors

Print Communications

Print communications are overseen by Editorial Services and include:
  • The university's Alumni Magazine, published three times a year in partnership with the Office of University Advancement, primarily for alumni, but also includes faculty, staff and an off-campus audience. 
  • NewsLine, a four-page print publication used to convey major news to a variety of audiences including community, business and government leaders and major donors.
