The Office of Communications offers forms and templates that may support your communications efforts. If you regularly develop a type of report that could benefit from a template not provided below, please let us know so that we can help.
The images below have been designed as 8.5 x 11" PowerPoint templates that can be customized for your special event. Download the template and update the document as appropriate for your special event or guest lecture.
Small Event Program
A 5.5 x 8.5" program template created in Microsoft Publisher that can be customized for a variety of events. Print on letter-sized paper and fold in half. Two design options available, in color or black-and-white. The option on the far right is a front and back single page option that will print two programs to a single sheet.
A 7 x 8.5" program template created in Microsoft Publisher that can be customized for a variety of events. Print on legal-sized paper and fold in half. Available in color or black-and-white. Please review the style guide for information on editing the template.
The communications office has 24 x 36" school posters to loan. These posters, designed to sit on an easel, can be easily customized for any event. Posters have the school branding and include an 8.5 x 11" clear acryclic frame which can be used to display a flyer. Flyers may promote an event, provide directions, schedules, etc. Please contact email@example.com or visit the communications office, Room 4066, to borrow up to three posters.
If you would like to create and print your own posters, the school offers 24 x 36" PowerPoint templates (click below). Your poster may be displayed on an easel either (1) mounted on foamcore or (2) in a frame.
Foamcore poster. Send a print-quality PDF of your poster to a copy center (we recommend the Student Stores Print Stop Copy Center). They can print it and mount it on foamcore for you.
Framed poster. Send a print-quality PDF of your poster to a copy center (we recommend the Student Union Print Stop Copy Center). Reserve up to 2 snap-open frames from the Communications Office. NOTE: Allow for a 1/2" border around your entire poster for the frame edges. This is the area where the frame border will cover the outside edges of your poster, leaving a 23" by 35" viewable area.
The Offices of Technology and Communications coordinate for the distribution of school-branded HTML emails, which can be effectively used when you are soliciting a response from the recipient -- register for an event, make a gift, save-the-date, etc.
To begin development, contact the Office of Communication with the following:
Unformatted Word document that includes: 1. text for the message, 2. the Subject line, 3. Email addresses for the From and Reply-To fields
Photographs and illustrations, if applicable
Mailing list: Submit an Excel file with email address.
Keep in mind that an HTML email is not as simple to produce as an ordinary text email, and thus it must go through editing, design, proofreading, and testing stages. Expect to collaborate, and please note that it may take up to two weeks to distribute the message after final approval of all of the above files.
