Website Announcements

Announcements for Placement on the University Website

Brief announcements related to Azusa Pacific University (APU) as well as the local community may be submitted to Allison Oster at aoster@apu.edu for placement on the university’s website. University Relations reserves the right to edit submitted copy in order to meet university editorial standards, captivate the reader, and ensure congruency with the university’s mission and purpose.

The announcement feature serves as one method of communication to keep the APU community informed of significant events, programs, and information. A Web announcement includes any link that falls under the announcement section on APU’s homepage, Today@APU, start pages, or any additional webpage with this feature. This can include linking to a basic announcement (announcement), separate web page (simple headline link), or media relations piece (news release, media alert, tip sheet, etc.).

Announcements include promotion of an event, awareness of a significant situation (such as APU’s response to war or campus electricity being down), or information about a new program.

Homepage and Today@APU announcements should be broad and community focused, demonstrating the university’s mission and purpose. In other words, the event/program/etc. must relate to more than one particular group (current and prospective students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and local community members). Announcements specific to a particular group will be posted in designated locations appropriate to that group.

There is no guarantee an announcement will be posted. Announcements will be reviewed for meeting the university’s mission and purpose and significance to the APU community as a whole. An appropriate form of announcement will be selected based on need and available resources.

Schedule

Requests for announcements should be turned in at least one month prior to when the announcement should run. The request will then be reviewed to select the best means of communicating that information. If approved, it will be scheduled for writing, follow up, and posting according to the form of announcement it falls under. Announcements are subject to change at any time if circumstances require it.
