Campus Announcements

Each Monday morning Campus Announcements is sent by electronic mail to all active New York State and Research Foundation employees, and any alums, retirees, students, FSA employees, affiliates, or community members that have subscribed to receive the mailing.

What are Campus Announcements?


Campus announcements range from administrative reminders such as when a monthly parking garage payment is due to workshop and training announcements, advertisements for hospital seminars and lectures, dates for charitable, cultural, and entertainment events, and research studies in need of participants

Less is More

The Campus Announcements distribution list considerably reduces the volume of emails that faculty and staff would otherwise receive from those on campus advertising their events.

Images and Logo Use


‚ÄčImages may be included in broadcast messages provided they meet the following criteria:

  • The image should add value to the message.
  • The image cannot contain text as these are not ADA compliant and people with vision impairments or those who have images turned off will not see the information.
  • Photos should be JPG, graphics should be PNG.
  • Images will be modified to fit within our approved template.
Logo and Image Placement

Our approved template allows for multiple images but these will be small and will be stacked on the right side of the template. Exact placement cannot be achieved.

Our template uses the University/Hospital logo at the top. No other SBU logo can be included and logos to other institutions/companies must be approved by the Communications office as including outside logos may make it look like SBU endorses or supports that entity.
