There’s a lot that happens after we click “publish” on a story. See below for just a few examples of where our stories end up (with the help of our marketing colleagues) – print pieces, social media, video, digital ads and more!
Admissions Viewbook can be viewed here! This years viewbook features a die-cut cover of our architecture and a fold-out back cover of the campus map. Inside you’ll find dedicated college pages, housing & dining highlights, steps to apply, and more.
Worked with CNHS and graphic designer Liana Depillo to create this Passport to Success calendar for parents and families that helps them support their first-year nursing students. A great tool to help improve retention in any college or program!
Did you know that our web team has formatted the UMass Dartmouth website for the best user experience possible? In addition to readability and visual aesthetic, the web team considers those with accessibility issues when designing all aspects of the website. This allows you, our content contributors, to focus on gathering and posting great content for your readers!
A few tips when entering in content for your site visitors:
Do not use extra returns for additional spacing between lines and/or paragraphs. Th website typography is coded for consistent spacing to ensure optimal legibility and consistency across all university pages.
Please limit the use of italics to names of books, films, journals, etc., as too many italicized words can often be difficult to read.
Separate content through the use of headings. This is more accessible and more search-engine friendly, which helps more visitors finds your site!
When adding images, please use the Blue “Select Media” button, rather than inserting it into the html editor. Selecting images through the Media library in this manner allows the images on the University’s site to be responsive, no matter what size screen our viewer uses (where inserting from the html editor can cause formatting issues).
Additionally, please try to refrain from using images-as-text to convey information. For our users that need screen-readers, these images aren’t accessible, and these users will not be able to receive that information. To read more on that subject, you can go to our guide on Images Best Practices and see the “text-as-image” accordion .
University Marketing has recently published fact sheets for the university and our colleges, consisting of rankings, demographics, outcomes, opportunities, and more. View them at the University Marketing webpage.
In an effort to bring some excitement to our incoming class and create user generated content, the Marketing team collaborated on a multi-media campaign to congratulate future UMassD students on their high school graduation.
First-year deposited students received a package in late May with a sticker to display their commitment to UMassD on their grad cap. 🎓
Fun fact: The sticker was designed by graphic design major Dylan Kelly ’22.
