Communications & Marketing
Communication with Campus
Employees and students who wish to communicate with the entire campus, whether for
events, reminders, or announcements, have a wide variety of ways to do so. If you
do wish to release a mass communication, you may choose to do one or more of the following
Posts for Tech Times can be submitted at tntech.edu/techtimes. Be sure to read the submission guidelines beforehand, and if you can, include an engaging photo or graphic. The Tech Times email is released Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, so be sure to keep that in mind when deciding when to publish your announcement in Tech Times.
All around campus, there are digital signage screens which can display graphic announcements. There are two kinds of screens: horizontal and vertical. Graphics for horizontal screens must be sized at 1920x900 at 92ppi, and vertical screens require 1080x1740 at 92ppi. For full details and resources, as well as instructions on how to submit an announcement for approval, visit tntech.edu/digitalsignage.
Main Campus Calendar
To submit an event to the main calendar, visit tntech.edu/calendar. Click “Submit Event” and fill out the event submission form to submit your event. If you need assistance, or wish to batch upload several events at a time, visit tntech.edu/web-support/calendar.
Some announcements may also be delivered via social media such as Twitter or Instagram. Visit tntech.edu/socialmedia for guidelines and official hashtags. If you don’t have a Tech social media account and are interested in having your post appear on official Tech social media accounts, email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Event Management System (EMS)
If you need to request a room or space for your event, you can do so using the Event Management System. Faculty, staff, and students can request space, and non-affiliated users must submit a Non-Affiliated Application within EMS and receive approval from the Dean of Students and the Vice President for Student Affairs prior to any Free Speech Activities.
