A Few Reminders About Inside JCU

With the start of a new semester, we know you are anxious to let the campus community know about your news and events via Inside JCU. We wanted to take a few moments to remind you of a few policies for posting that we hope will make things run smoothly for spring 2014.

How to submit an item: Simply visit the Inside JCU website and click on “Submit to Inside JCU,” then select the appropriate item from the drop down list. You’ll then be directed to a form. Fill out the form and click the submit button. Be sure to double-check everything on your form, since this information will be sent directly to us and will be used to construct your posting.

Then what happens? When we receive your submission, we check it over for grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. If we should have any questions about the information, we will contact you via the email address provided on your submission for clarification.

Submission deadlines: Please submit your item at least 48 hours in advance of the date you would like it posted. We recommend that you submit items three to five days before your desired posting date so that questions may be addressed, or in the case of a rare technological difficulty.

What if my information changes after I submit it? No need to worry! Simply fill out another submission form with the corrected information, noting somewhere in the “Item Description” field that the submission is meant to replace the previous submission.

What if something in my submission is posted incorrectly? Please keep in mind that a member of the Integrated Marketing and Communications (IMC) team reviews each submission during regular University business hours. If you see that something is not correct in your posting, please email us at insidejcu@jcu.edu and we will work with you to correct it.

Who sees what? In terms of the daily emails, simply put, whomever you check on the submission form. If you ask for the item to only be sent to students, then faculty and staff will not receive it in their versions of the daily email. However, all items are available on the Inside JCU website, regardless of the requested audience.

These are just a few reminders we thought were important to communicate to you at the beginning of a new semester. We greatly encourage you to read the Inside JCU Guidelines for more specific information.

If you should have any questions about Inside JCU, feel free to email us at insidejcu@jcu.edu.
