Publicizing Tips

Publicizing Events
To publicize or send out advance notice of your event online, please make use of Localist, DePaul’s university-wide calendar. A Campus Connect or Facebook log-in is required. Once logged-in, click the small box labeled “Submit an Event” on the upper right side. The form is straightforward and can be filled out quickly. Of importance is to make sure to tag your submission with the name of the department or unit with which the event is affiliated, as well as to designate College of LAS. Once this is done, the event will automatically appear in the upcoming events feed on the LAS website, on your department’s or unit’s on-line calendar if one has been added to the website, as well as on other department’s or unit’s website if their filters include you. Should you require assistance with Localist, instructions can be found on the Information Services website.

Publicizing Faculty, Student or Alumni News
When you want to publicize news about faculty, student or alumni achievement (aside from making sure it's on the LAS Facebook Page), notify Melissa Smith in Advancement. Melissa, who oversees the LAS quarterly alumni magazine Insights, also shares information with the university’s Office of Public Relations and Communications (OPRC) on a regular basis for use in DePaul Magazine, etc. Our college is frequent mentioned in “in-house” university venues such as Newsline. Stories can be submitted directly to Newsline using their on-line form.
