CRM update from OMC Comms team

OMC’s Communications team is preparing to implement a CRM system, RightNow, to track media releases from submission to distribution and manage media release workflow.

A media release submission form is being developed to enhance the editing and approval process. This new system is still in the early stages of development, and further updates on the form will follow over coming weeks.

In the meantime, please continue to email communications@uq.edu.au to submit a media release or for any questions about the new system.

Help bring the UQ Advantage to life on Facebook

The UQ Facebook page has become an important communication channel for prospective and current students. Over the past couple of years, we have built a strong following of over 25,000 fans and used the page to support our advertising campaigns and share important news stories…but we want to do more!

We would like to work closely with other areas of the University to provide an interesting mix of content that brings the UQ Advantage to life. If you have any research, learning or engagement stories that you would like to share, please complete our online submission form or contact us to discuss your ideas. The form also provides some general content guidelines.

We will also be working to increase our current and prospective student following on Facebook and any help promoting the page to your audiences is appreciated.
