Announcing the “Dean’s Office Messenger”

February 5, 2014 by School of Medicine Webmaster   |   Leave a Comment

Welcome to the new Dean’s Office Messenger site! We created this site to reduce the volume of group e-mail announcements and to target information to specific audiences. This new communication vehicle features:

  1. A centralized location for School of Medicine messages. Instead of individual e-mails sent to large numbers of recipients, messages will be posted here (, available to read at your convenience. Announcements will remain on the site as long as appropriate and can be searched from within the site.
  2. “Opt-In” Periodic Digests. You will be able to sign up for daily or weekly digests of specific topics. This will reduce the number of e-mail notifications arriving in your inbox.
  3. Private and internal-only communications will require a login. The titles of these internal-only items will be visible to everyone, but you will have to sign in through Netbadge to read the content.

Right now we are launching this site with a focus on research communications, including funding opportunities and general research announcements. As we add categories to the Deans Office Messenger, we will send e-mails inviting you and your colleagues to sign up for the digest e-mails. Thank you to our research deans for taking the lead in this effort and to Cathy Derecki for building the site.
