Message Center Resources

Best Practices and protocol for administrators:

We need your help in using Message Center in the appropriate fashion. As administrators, it is important that you do not abuse the system by sending too many messages to the community. It is viewed as spam and will quickly be deleted. Please consider the following for effective communication:

  • Send only one message. Be strategic on the subject line and the timing, particularly if it is an event.
  • Refrain from sending picture only messages, many recipients are on mobile devices and receiving a blank message.
  • Provide the date, time, location and contact information where appropriate for your message.
  • Consider putting your message in News & Events Daily (http://www.rit.edu/news/nandedaily.php) produced by University News. The electronic newsletter has a robust calendar for events and has the ability to produce “advertisements” if you have larger events. Contact Marie Lang at mdluns@rit.edu for more information on disseminating your message.
  • Consider other options beyond Message Center for disseminating your message, ranging from message boards to social media.

Let’s all do our best to use Message Center more effectively.
