CHNA Communications Action Team

Data gathered in the CHNA showed that students and staff don’t know about all the resources offered at UChicago and how to find/access them. People feel inundated with emails and yet don’t know where to find information when they need it most.

Based on this feedback, the CHNA Communications Action Team developed the following goals to address communications on campus:

  • Develop a best practices tool to improve email communications across the University
  • Create a “one-stop shop” online resource that easily links to all University resources
  • Create an inventory of communications contacts from each division, school and department

    Campus Resources

    A resource highlighting best practices for email communication was identified as a goal based on feedback received from the CHNA and subsequent focus groups. The CHNA Communications Flyer was developed as a response to that need.

    Through the CHNA process, students indicated that it was difficult to know all resources available on campus and where to find them. As such, the CHNA Communications Action Team created this campus resource inventory as a way to provide a “one-stop shop” to campus resources and how to access them.
