Be an influencer, share your expertise

Do you have a best practice, industry benchmark, or exciting communications project you want to share with your colleagues? Share your knowledge on  the Communications Blog.

The blog is distributed to more than 1,200 University community members who have opted to receive weekly digests, and many posts receive hundreds—sometimes thousands—of views. We often hear from people across the country who have found our blog while searching for related information on Google or LinkedIn.

Topics should be of interest to communicators, like a brief story about how you solved a communication challenge,  resources you would recommend to improve writing skills, or an aspect of communication that is unique to the University or your college.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Content should be informative and educational, as well as relevant to communications and marketing at the University.
  • Posts should be 200 to 400 words and follow the UR editorial style.
  • A writer/editor will review all submissions. We may edit your post, including headlines and subheadings; submission does not guarantee publication.
  • Submit your post for review via Google Form by Friday. New blogs are posted on Tuesdays.

If you have questions about submitting a guest blog post, contact Christie Wells.
