COSSPP Communications Services

Info for Faculty & Staff

Our College’s Communications Team would love to help our faculty and staff with promotional needs. Please find information about how to engage our services below.

SharePoint Site: Find Resources!

We are populating our Communications SharePoint site with resources (including photos from events, faculty and staff headshots, logos, PowerPoint templates, letterhead, and other templates). 

This is a work in progress, but it is a good thing to bookmark as we will be adding to this constantly.

Promotion Requests

Submit requests for promoting events, opportunities, and deadlines to the campus community through our survey:


  1. If you need graphics designed:

    Turn in this form ( 4 weeks before the date of your event (to allow for design and 2 full weeks of promotion).
  2. If you have approved graphics (created with the College’s Canva Pro)

    Turn in this form ( 2 weeks before the date of your event. View this short tutorial to learn how to get started and access the library of templates. Visit our SharePoint for login information.

We understand that sometimes you may not have the info needed to complete this form in its entirety. Please provide the information you can and email with updates as you receive them.

When you are provided with a draft for review, you must collect all edits before submitting revisions. Edits should come in one email and clearly state what should be changed for the final product.

If you require more revisions after the first round of edits, the design will be published as a template, and you can make adjustments from there.

Faculty & Staff News

Faculty and staff should email directly to provide information about publications, research, honors and awards, grants, service involvement, media mentions, and any other notable items as they happen.

Student & Alumni Feature Stories

Students and alumni are encouraged to submit information through this survey to be considered for a COSSPP feature story:

If you are aware of an alum who has received an honor/has done something significant, email with the information. We may be able to amplify the message without requesting the alum complete our feature story survey.

Bellamy Posting Boards

Please hang your flyers on the posting boards around Bellamy conscientiously.
