Policies and guidelines

Campus Checklist is a brief campus news digest delivered biweekly to all UVic faculty and staff via their university-supplied email. It is intended to help strengthen communications between faculty and staff in different areas, support UVic’s culture of respect, inclusion and collaboration, build a sense of shared enterprise and improve campus communications.

What content is given priority?

University faculty and staff are the main audience of Checklist emails, and content is chosen to reflect its relevance and significance to a wide range of faculty and staff. Principles and examples that guide content include:

  • Need-to-know news or information about policies, processes or other administrative changes for UVic employees
  • Announcements about broad-based or campus-wide service improvements that will help faculty and staff in their work, or will otherwise improve campus life (e.g. new services, supports or employee programs)
  • Opportunities for engagement, consultation or input on matters of widespread interest or impact
  • Deadlines for institution-wide initiatives (e.g. President’s Extraordinary Service Awards, Chancellor searches, governing body nominations)
  • Major event announcements that are relevant to a wide range of campus audiences
  • Volunteer or community partnership opportunities for campus community members
  • Extraordinary achievements or recognition of teaching and research that help demonstrate what sets UVic apart on the national or international scale

In order to ensure that Checklist covers the highest impact items for the campus community, Internal Communications staff encourage contributions from across the university. The Ring newspaper, My page, Current faculty and staff and UVic News will continue to provide possible venues for suitable announcements that aren't included in the Campus Checklist broadcast emails.
