    Happy February 1!

    Does your school have a digital bulletin board or online communication portal where faculty and staff go to see important information, daily announcements, lists of visiting students, calendar for the day, etc.?

    if so, can you please share the product your school is using to offer that?

    Thank you!

    Hey Bill,
    Your inquiry got me thinking. We have a faculty portal through BlackBaud/MSA that we could more efficiently use to provide admission information to our faculty. The faculty portal contains plenty of useful information; however, unless there is an email (with embedded links) to direct folks to go there, I think it is largely ignored. People are busy and don't take the extra step if they cannot prioritize it.

    Currently, we create and distribute a document to faculty at the beginning of the year that explains useful elements of admission and financial aid, and we send weekly emails with information about our visitors and interviews.

    Hope you're doing well!
