Putting pride in promotions a professional priority

A workshop on incorporating the “Windsor Proud” theme into departmental communications and promotion efforts is one in the series of professional development opportunities offered by the Department of Human Resources in December.

“Windsor Proud” is the new awareness and enrolment campaign that features current students telling their UWindsor stories through the use of billboards, cinema ads, social media, and traditional advertising. Its focus on spirit and attitude comes at a time of unprecedented growth at the University in terms of enrolment, research, and new buildings.

John Coleman, director of Public Affairs and Communications, will lead a two-hour session on the morning of Thursday, Dec. 13, providing practical examples of how to use these messages to reach potential students, the campus community, Windsor-Essex and the province.

Other workshops include:

  • Minute Taking at the “U,” 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 4;
  • Using Outlook Beyond E-mail, 9 to 11 a.m. Dec. 6
  • The Cost of Caring – Preventing Compassion Fatigue, 9 to 10:30 a.m. Dec. 12
