New Campus Web-based
Calendar is Coming
A new Web-based calendar of UAlbany
events is in development with a target launch
date of September 2004. The goal is to provide
comprehensive, up-to-date, and easily accessible
information about the broad range of University
events, programs, and activities.
Staff from across the University will be able
to submit and manage info about events in their
areas of responsibility, and all who access the
calendar will be able to choose how they view
information, i.e. by day, week or month, or by
areas of interest, such as arts, athletics, and
student events. The new calendar will offer features
not available through the daily Today@UAlbany
newsletter, which lists events and announcements.
The Office of Media and Marketing, which is developing
the calendar, held an initial meeting May 26 with
staff from across the campus who currently manage
or contribute to calendars of events for their
specific units. Feedback from staff will help
shape the structure of the calendar. Training
classes will be held in the months ahead for those
who will administer unit calendars.
“The participation of people across our entire
University is key to the calendar’s success,”
said Catherine Herman, associate vice president
for the Office of Media and Marketing.
