Improvements to The Source help streamline news, events, and classifieds
May 10, 2013
Dear Source reader,
Recent improvements to The Source offer a streamlined look at news, events, and classifieds for faculty and staff.
Important Notices include news from the administration and important bulletins that affect an institution-wide audience.
Points of Pride features the inspiring energy and intellect of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
A newly-designed calendar offers an at-a-glance look at campus events of interest to faculty and staff, as well as open-to-the-public events. Please visit The Source FAQ page to learn how to promote your event.
Links directly to The Green—a password-protected space for faculty, staff, and students to share new opportunities and create community. Anyone with an “@lclark” login can post information. This is our forum, like our own Craigslist!
Why the changes?
All of these changes were inspired by a year’s worth of information gathering from key audiences:
- A survey of faculty and staff taken in October 2012
- Additional key findings from faculty focus groups (recommended by President Glassner) in February 2013
- The upcoming introduction of Workday in 2014
- Crucial needs identified by the strategic plan
From reporting on board meetings to welcoming our newest colleagues, The Source strives to capture more than just campus news stories—it’s a narrative of the Lewis & Clark faculty and staff experience.
As always, you are invited to send all institution-wide announcements, events, and story ideas to: firstname.lastname@example.org
