UCM to reduce Compass email distribution to once a week after Spring Break

Ohio University Communications and Marketing (UCM) recently announced that the Compass newsletter email distribution schedule will be reduced from twice a week to once a week beginning the week of March 19. The first once-a-week Compass email will be distributed on Thursday, March 22.

While the Thursday Compass email will provide highlights from the week’s events, stories and announcements, the Compass website will continue to be updated daily with the latest news from Ohio University.

This schedule change is one part of a larger redesign currently underway for both the Compass email and website, which will provide an enhanced user experience for readers. The UCM staff has worked to develop benchmarks, engage stakeholders and better understand the communication needs of students, faculty and staff through feedback sessions, focus groups and a comprehensive readership survey conducted in spring 2017.

The Ohio Employee News (OEN) email will continue to be distributed to faculty and staff on Monday mornings. OEN is a simplified, easy-to-read newsletter intended to deliver need-to-know information to University employees every Monday morning during the academic year.

As always, the Compass staff welcomes your feedback.
