All campus events and date-driven information for students, faculty and staff must be posted to the University Calendar.
As new events are being planned, the Master Calendar should be reviewed by any Augusta University group who wishes to host or sponsor an event to avoid obvious schedule conflicts.
Events that should not be published on the University calendar include but are not limited to, events that lack appropriate sponsorship by a Augusta University entity or lack a clear Augusta University connection. Classes, sales, services, office/lab hours, department meetings, student club meetings, save the dates, and application deadlines will not be displayed on the calendar. In general, no event should be listed that spans multiple weeks.
The Office of Communications determines what listings appear on the University Calendar, the Featured Events calendar and the Featured Events sidebar on the Augusta University home page and PAWS. DCM reserves the right to delete and/or edit event listings if they do not meet appropriate criteria, violate local, state or federal law, or Augusta University policies and procedures.
Augusta University has adopted a streamlined web calendar system for the purposes of providing important date driven information to students, faculty, staff and our public constituents.
A calendar “event” is a deadline or activity about which our internal or external stakeholders need to know. Each calendar event must have an Office of Record that is responsible for posting and maintaining information about the event on the calendar. This Office would also assume responsibility for providing more information about the event should there be questions.
The Office of Record will need to choose which of the main calendar views the event should be listed on primarily. If the event should be included in the Academic Calendar, a request should be made to the Registrar’s Office. If the event should be included in the Events Calendar, the Office’s web publisher will be able to post the event directly.
All events should also be categorized by selecting at least one sub-category that will generally enable the Office of Record to highlight these on a separate view. ALL events will aggregate under one of the two Master Calendar Categories (Academic or Events).
DCM will support an Office of Record that wishes to set up a departmental calendar that lists events that do not display on the Master Calendar view(s).
