The OMC can help you promote your achievement, event, or activity, and share any important information or announcements you may have through a variety of channels on campus, within the community, and well beyond.

On-Campus Promotion

OMC Marketing Channels

Events

The OMC oversees the UAH Event System, which features events affiliated with UAH and held on the UAH campus as well as events sanctioned by UAH and held off campus (e.g., Alumni, Art, Music, or Theatre events). Events submitted to the UAH Event System may also appear on relevant departmental pages on the UAH website, in the student newsletter, and/or in the weekly Headlines email that goes to faculty and staff.

To submit an event to the UAH Event System, go to uah.edu/events.

News

Have you received a major award, grant, or fellowship? Released cutting-edge research results? Collaborated with another college or university to conduct a ground-breaking study? Spent a semester studying in a distant corner of the globe? Presented at an international conference? Then we want to hear from you! News is how we tell the world about all of the amazing, exciting things that our students, faculty, researchers, and staff are doing to help make UAH such a special place.

To submit an item to UAH News, contact omc@uah.edu.

Announcements

Primarily intended for the campus community, announcements comprise construction updates, important HR information, road closures, parking changes, and other information of that nature. Announcements appear in several places: in the Announcements section of the weekly Headlines email that goes to faculty and staff, on the Faculty & Staff page of the website, and on the Announcements page of the website.

To submit an announcement, contact omc@uah.edu.

Headlines

Headlines is a curated email for faculty and staff comprising articles from UAH News, announcements that have been sent to the OMC, and events that have been submitted to the UAH Event System.

To submit an event to Headlines, go to uah.edu/events.

To submit an announcement to Headlines, contact omc@uah.edu.

Campuswide Email

The OMC has the ability to send campuswide emails; however, these emails are solely intended for information of great importance to the entire campus community. Barring an urgent announcement (e.g., severe weather), requests to send information via a campuswide email must be submitted two weeks in advance.

To submit an item to be shared via campuswide email, contact webmaster@uah.edu.

Social Media

The OMC administers the university's main Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages. The primary audience for these pages is prospective UAH students.

To submit an item to be shared on UAH's main social media pages, contact social@uah.edu.

To see other UAH-affiliated platforms not administered by the OMC, visit the UAH Social Media Directory.
