Internal Communications

Much of the university’s internal communications are handled by Marketing Communications. In particular, our office:

  • Manages SU Today, a site dedicated to university messages, information and events, sends a companion e-mail to faculty and staff twice a week to promote events on campus. You can request an announcement here to be featured on the SU Today site and in the e-mail. 
  • Distributes “Official Communications” e-mails, as needed, to inform the campus of important changes in university practices and personnel as well as other key campus developments.
  • Edits The Commons, Seattle University’s faculty and staff online news site.

To submit a story for the commons, please e-mail

Note: Other departments and offices that contribute to the university’s internal communications include, among others, the President’s Office, Provost’s Office, Human Resources, Office of Information Technology and Campus Public Safety.
