Communications and Marketing Support

The Werklund School's Communications and Marketing team can provide tools and guidance for marketing events that focus on broad participation across audiences including the faculty, university and external to the university. Our team does not have capacity to manage internal events coordination for the faculty.

  1. Tell us about your event

    Submit an events form to the Communications and Marketing team if your event requires:

    • Help with social media planning
    • Media relations (pitching news release to external media)
    • A story in internal communications channels like UToday
    • Government stakeholders or other VIPs
    • Marketing collateral (ie: print or digital)
  2. Only want to promote your event on social media?

    Our social media form helps you give us all the details we'll need to promote your event online.

  3. Would you like your event promoted on the Werklund School website?

    Contact our events project specialist to share your event on the Werklund School homepage.

  4. Need a Werklund banner for your event?

    If you are a member of faculty or support staff, you can sign out a banner through the Office of Administration.

UCalgary's Marketing team provides professional design support for all faculties and is the central resource on campus for creative solutions, providing an efficient, cost-effective way for faculty and staff to create materials that are compelling, engaging and aligned with the UCalgary brand.  For easy-to-use Werklund School templates, check out materials on SharePoint, (must sign in).

  1. How do I use the University and/or Werklund School logos?

    Please review UCalgary's Brand Standards for appropriate logo usage.

  2. I'm promoting an event in collaboration with other UCalgary entities?

    Use the UCalgary logo, rather than several different department or unit lockups, but ensure the Werklund School of Education is mentioned in the body with the other collaborating faculties or units.
