The Marketing & Communications department needs help from departmental representatives to gather information about specific students and their accomplishments. These individuals have already been contacted about this responsibility. Email reminders will be sent at the start of each month to those who are expected to send information.
The list of accomplishments we are currently publicizing is on the Merit page.
STEP 1: WRITE A VERY BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENT.
This part will be included in the news story to explain to the reader what this accomplishment is. For example, here is the summary for the Dean’s List announcement: To be eligible for Dean's List, a student must carry a semester GPA of 3.6 or better in no fewer than 15 credit hours of graded college level work and have completed all work for which they are registered by the end of the semester. Some announcements may not need a summary if they’re very obvious.
If this entire group won a specific accomplishment this year (e.g., the women’s basketball team won the RMAC Shootout), include that here. If a certain accomplishment applies only to a few students, add it in step 4 below.
STEP 2: GATHER NAMES.
Gather the list of students who achieved the particular accomplishment.
Ensure that the list of students is comprehensive and correct. Announcements will be sent soon after spreadsheets are received, so there likely won't be time for corrections.
STEP 3: ENTER STUDENTS' BASIC INFORMATION INTO THE SPREADSHEET.
Please use this spreadsheet to submit your information or format your own similarly. The minimum amount of information needed is the student’s student ID number, FLC email address, first name, and last name. We can pull the other information that needed (email address, hometown, major) from the current enrolled spreadsheet.
STEP 4: (OPTIONAL) ENTER MORE DETAILED INFORMATION INTO THE SPREADSHEET.
If desired, use the additional columns to include other information that we might not necessarily have access to (e.g. country and school where a student studied abroad, title of research paper or poster presentation, tutoring area of expertise, etc.). If using the optional fields, change the column label to reflect what it represents.
These can be in the format of single words (which will be placed into a sentence), or an entire sentence. (If using the latter method, please refer to the student by last name only so it matches the rest of the article.)
STEP 5: EMAIL THE SUMMARY AND SPREADSHEET.
Email your completed spreadsheet and any relevant photos to FLC's Media Relations Strategist, Lauren Savage. The announcement will go out within the next week! Let your students know to expect an email to their FLC account.
FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, governs how we share any student information.
