How to post Announcements (Faculty & Staff)

The University of Lethbridge’s student portal includes functionality that allows university staff and faculty to target messages to specific audiences.

How to Send a ULink Announcement
Step #1 – Develop content

When developing your message for the portal, please be mindful of the following guidelines.

Announcements must:

  • Be relevant to all students within the audience targeted
  • Must enhance the student experience
  • Not be redundant (within the announcement itself, or refer to information already posted)

Every announcement must include:

  • An author (name, title and/or department)
  • Reply-to contact details (for students to contact for more information), and if different than the reply-to details, who the publisher may contact for more information

Please try to keep all announcements under 150 words.

Note: Content may be edited for length, clarity, voice etc.

Step #2 – Identify who the announcement is for

Please select the category or categories of students below to receive the message:

  1. Undergraduate students
  2. Graduate students
  3. Lethbridge Campus
  4. Calgary Campus
  5. Edmonton Campus

Note: we are not able to target Faculties or departments at this time.

Step #3 – Identify time frame

Announcements must be timed appropriately and have a proposed start and end date for publishing.

Step #4 – Submit your announcement to the publisher
