Communications Considerations

Communication of changes to policy or adoption of new policies should be formal and may involve any of the following depending on the particular policy, the complexity of the change, the scope and impact, etc.

  1. Publish a story or notice using any of:
    • The Gazette
    • MUN Today
    • Newsline

  2. Send memos or emails to administrative staff within units and/or senior administrators (deans and directors) with possible request to cascade the message or notify employees/students within the unit.

  3. Deliver face to face presentations, either to specific groups or the entire University community.

  4. Place posters in appropriate locations around the campus.

  5. Other media, if appropriate.

In addition to the various options above, the new or revised policy, once approved, is always posted to the University’s policy website.
