Events Planning and Publicity

The Office of Public Affairs publishes several print and electronic documents to help Amherst College students, faculty and staff announce events and news on campus:

Campus Intranet — an “internal homepage” featuring news of particular interest to Amherst students, faculty and staff. Any student, faculty or staff member may announce official college events or news on the Intranet. Announcements will be reviewed by the Office of Public Affairs and may be edited for length. Announcements will be posted to the Intranet daily. Submit an announcement.

e-Digest — a weekly e-mail digest sent every Tuesday during the academic year (except during vacations) to all Amherst students, faculty and staff. All announcements submitted to and approved for the Intranet will automatically be collected and distributed in the e-Digest. Individuals who would like to receive a print copy of the e-Digest should e-mail info@amherst.edu.

Calendar & News — a print document featuring a calendar of all college-sponsored public events on campus, as well as selected news announcements, sent every Thursday during the academic year (except during vacations) to all students, faculty and staff. The calendar listings include all college-sponsored public events for which space on campus has been reserved. Official news announcements are culled from those submitted to the Intranet and e-Digest.

News Releases — sent from the Office of Public Affairs to reporters interested in hearing about on-campus news and events.
