Note: Department events are facilitated and supported by the academic coordinators. Faculty members planning an event should contact their department chair and the academic coordinator for their department to get started. EVENT COORDINATORS: MAKE SURE TO ADD YOUR EVENT TO THE NEWHOUSE EVENTS GROUP ON TEAMS TO AVOID CONFLICTS. 

Event calendar

  4. Once an event is submitted, it will be reviewed and posted within one business day.

Digital signage

NOTE: Events submitted to the calendar automatically appear on the screens around Newhouse. You do not need to create a poster.

  • Submit digital signs for posting on Newhouse screens by emailing Specify start and end dates.

Social media

Events will be shared twice on Newhouse social media channels: once when they are submitted, and a second time just before the event date.
