LiveWhale Campus Calendar Training

The LiveWhale Campus Calendar is an important tool for users throughout campus. In her 2018-2013 strategic plan, Dr. Faith Hensrud set forth a goal to increase opportunities for faculty and students to engage with one another outside the classroom. Through combined efforts to meet that goal, academic departments will schedule at least one talk or event to which students are invited each semester. The Office of Communications and Marketing will contribute to meeting this goal by facilitating the timely and comprehensive use of the university events calendar on the BSU website for all campus events. If you would like publishing access to the comprehensive campus calendar or would like to create your own sub-calendar, please contact Rachel Munson.

The Office of Communications & Marketing will hold regular campus calendar trainings. All BSU employees are encouraged to attend.
