CASSH Communication Policies, Best Practices and Support Resources
CASSH abides by the university’s policies and branding standards for publicity, media and crisis relations.
As part of its strategic external communications, University Communications acts as the primary liaison between the media and the University. Items that require publicity to external communities (those outside of the UWF community) should be brought to the attention of University Communications.
CASSH Communications requests that both internal and external publicity items be shared with the CASSH office so that the college may remain informed of initiatives and offer additional publicity support as needed. These items may include events, guest lectures, exhibitions, performances, notable awards and achievements and funded research initiatives.
Please view the following policies and best practices.
