Share your story
UW-Eau Claire Integrated Marketing and Communications (IMC) welcomes your ideas for stories to share with the university's key audiences. Please read the following FAQ, then share your story via the Story Idea Submission Form linked below.
Q. What happens after I submit my story idea?
A. IMC staff will determine if your story suggestion is a fit with our current marketing and communications priorities and, if so, how the story can best be shared and with which audiences. Possible forms your story could take include:
- a feature story on the university website
- a post on one or more of UW-Eau Claire’s social media accounts
- a video or slide show
- a press release or media memo distributed to news media
- a feature or highlight on the Admissions website or in a student recruitment print piece or email message
- a feature on the UW-Eau Claire Foundation website or in a publication or email message for potential donors.
Q. What if I want to promote an upcoming event?
A. Do not submit event information via the Story Idea Submission Form. Instead, please post details about your campus event in the online events calendar. (To obtain publishing rights for a member of your department to post events in the online calendar, contact Jean Piper at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
The online events calendar is IMC’s go-to resource for event information to share with our various audiences. IMC staff regularly review events posted in the online calendar and sends weekly “event highlights” to area news media to help raise the visibility of events. We also post reminders on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) about events in the online calendar, and share events information on the university website as appropriate. Remember, post your event in the online calendar to ensure that we can help you promote it!
Q. What if IMC decides not to develop my suggested story?
A. IMC may decide not to pursue your story at this time. Even if IMC does not use your story, we encourage you to share it on your department/program website and on any social media pages your department or program maintains. Should we determine the story does not currently fit our universitywide marketing and communications priorities, it still is likely to be of interest to prospective students and prospective faculty and staff who may visit your website. Remember, it’s always important to keep your website and social media pages updated with fresh content!
