Division Communication Policies and Guidelines

There are several options available for communicating your message to the HSU community. Communications are distributed through various channels including email, web-based calendar and announcement systems, social media, and the campus portal, depending on your audience. Select your audience and determine the most appropriate communication tool.

EMSA Division Staff
  • Portal Messaging Center; contact Kay Libolt or Kate Stroup to submit a request.
  • Email
    • Be sure the information/event/notice is about University related business and the majority of staff would professionally benefit from receiving the information.
    • Submit the message to your Direct for approval. If approved, the Director will post it to the SA divisional list serve (sastaff@humboldt.edu); the Director may opt to forward the notice to alternate groups, e.g. specific departments or the VPSA Council group.
