The Office of Public Affairs and Communications (OPAC) is pleased to announce the launch of Today@ND the University’s new internal communications daily news and events website.
Today@ND joins a suite of internal communications tools including NDWorks, TheWeek@ND, and calendar.nd.edu.
“Our job in internal communications is to try, as best we can, to keep people updated on what is happening on campus,” says Todd Woodward, OPAC assistant vice president for marketing communications.
“The truth is that proliferation of communications tools has increased expectations. The expectation of the campus consumer is like the rest of the world: I want the information I care about now, and in the ways I want to receive it. Our focus over the last year—and moving forward—is to provide relevant information to campus in a timely manner across many different platforms,” he says. “OIT has been critical in helping us develop new and more advanced platforms to deliver this information.”
Today@ND offers an easy-to- navigate, focused site for internal communications—providing timely and relevant information on events around campus, as well as news, features, staff recognition and University-wide communications. The site is optimized for mobile devices, allowing easy access via smartphone.
Today@ND also includes continually updated stories from Notre Dame News, a link to the University’s online calendar and the InsideND login page, archives of NDWorks and TheWeek, campus deals and discounts, health and fitness information and activities of interest to families.
Other communications tools are undergoing some changes as well:
Beginning Tuesday, May 31 (after the Memorial Day Holiday), watch for the re-designed TheWeek@ND in your email inbox every Monday morning. The new, more readable design features a single column of text rather than two columns.
InsideND will soon debut a new login page designed to integrate with Today@ ND and TheWeek@ND.
NDWorks will continue publishing a monthly print edition 10 times per year, making campus news available to those employees who lack regular computer access at work.
We’d like your input: After you visit Today@ND, please send comments and suggestions to Carol C. Bradley, managing editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
