What is the Communications Center?

The Communications Center is a self-service platform for the campus community to publicize University-related news and events to a broad audience. Articles from Ball State colleges, departments, and other units are included in an emailed daily digest and other forms of communication.


How does it work?

Each business day, the Communications Center sends a daily digest to faculty, staff, and students with the articles created by authorized publishers by 3 p.m. the previous day. Recipients are empowered to choose the frequency of when they receive emails and notifications in various categories, ranging from immediately to not at all.

Articles are published by authorized publishers, with the approval of their department heads and unit leaders.
