Internal Communication Tools
Stetson University provides a variety of tools for faculty and staff to communicate with internal audiences. Many of these tools are available to users through the website and others require you to contact Director of Communications Alicia Scott at [email protected] or 386-822-7215 (office) and 386-872-8921 (cell).
Stetson Today is the university's online news site, updated daily with news and information. To suggest an idea for a story, use the Story Idea Form. Every Monday morning, "The Top Stories from Stetson Today" e-newsletter goes out to students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, retirees and interested people in the community. Anyone can sign up to receive the newsletter. Simply enter your email address.
The Stetson community can enter announcements by submitting an announcement. Follow the instructions to enter your announcement, which will appear on Stetson Today once it is approved. New announcements are emailed the following morning to your selected audience: undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and/or staff.
Digital signs are found in buildings across campus. The monitors show messages for about 15 seconds before moving to the next one. If you would like a digital slide to advertise an upcoming event or other message, please contact Alicia Scott.
During emergencies, such as a hurricane, Stetson will send out important information and updates. Messages may be sent by text, phone or email when there is an emergency on campus and an immediate need to warn the internal community. They also may be posted to Stetson's official Facebook and Twitter accounts. To ensure you receive Hatter Alerts by text, phone and/or email, please log in to My Stetson, go to Hatter Alert and update your contact information.
Specific users and departments can request a global email be sent from Stetson Communications to faculty, staff and/or students. Administrators, IT and Public Safety send important messages that need immediate attention or are required by the government to be sent to internal audiences.
If you need to send a message to a limited group, such as first-year students, then MyStetson Messaging may be useful. Audiences can be specified by year (for students), school (for faculty) and other categories. These users will receive your message when they log into https://my.stetson.edu/. For more information, please contact Alicia Scott.
