Can I send an e-mail to the entire University?
University-wide e-mails on specific topics are typically restricted to items deemed by the University administration to be of great importance or urgency to many members of the OHIO community. Please click here to download a document providing comprehensive guidelines for all-campus e-mails (or all-faculty, all-student e-mails, etc.)
In most cases, members of our academic community are encouraged to submit items of interest to Compass, OHIO’s official news and information publication, for publication at the discretion of its editors. Compass headlines are also collected and distributed regularly to the University community in e-mails that feature summaries and clickable links for each highlighted story.
Three options exist for submitting items to Compass:

How can I get my department’s event information added to the University’s online calendar?
Anyone with an OHIO ID and password can add an event by visiting http://www.ohio.edu/calendar and clicking the "Add Event" button. Log in with your OHIO ID and fill out the resulting form. Should an entry need to be updated, the person who created that entry can edit it by returning to the calendar link above and logging in via the "Add Event" button. The form that appears after login holds a link titled "Edit Events" on the right-hand side in the gray bar near the top of the page.
