At a complex organization like University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, getting your message across effectively to the right audience at the right time can be a challenge. 

Understanding the tools and channels available can help you increase the effectiveness of your communications.


The CU Anschutz Medical Campus adopted its first mass electronic communications policy ‒ CU Anschutz Policy 3019A ‒ in March 2023 to streamline and target campus communications, and to better align with CU systemwide policy APS 6002.

Under the policy, messages sent to the entire campus are only permitted when they meet specific guidelines and have leadership-level approval. This includes messages sent through the CU eComm program and Outlook Listservs. 

Events are promoted via the events calendar. Students and employees can view posted events and sign up for event digest emails on specific events or event categories.
