Communications Resources

The Dean’s Office is here to help share your stories and promote your events!

Submit your College of Arts and Sciences stories, faculty-in-action items and COAS-sponsored events here. Submit using this form and your story or event will be posted on the COAS and university website news/event feeds, college newsletters, Opportunities and Events email, The Update and COAS social channels.

Event Submission Deadlines

We recommend submitting your events three weeks before your event for the best saturation via our push communications (emails). We publish event submissions up to 5 days before the event.

Story Submission Turnaround Time

At the moment, stories take up to 10 business days to post (sorry, we’re working on it). Stories which are organized and fully or partially written will be posted much more quickly than if you’re submitting a story lead (“I know someone who did a thing and it’s pretty cool.”). In order for stories to be published widely on the university website these must be written using university writing and Associated Press (AP) style guides. The communications team in the college dean’s office may copy edit and/or rewrite parts of your story submissions so that we can publish across as many channels as possible. We’re excited to help share your story. If you have questions, contact Jeffery Oliver ( in the dean’s office.

Opportunities for Students, Staff and Faculty

Do you have an opportunity for COAS students, faculty or staff? Email and we’ll publish these to our “opportunities for…” feeds and include these in internal college newsletters.
