Getting Started: Internal Communications


The internal communications guideline page is a one-stop shop that provides the Chapman University community resources and instructions for submitting campus-facing communications.


Working@Chapman is a resource for faculty and staff to quickly locate and understand important resources, tools and announcements. Both the Working@Chapman website and twice weekly newsletter use a continuous improvement model to optimize and meet the needs of our campus community.

The Working@Chapman newsletter allows you to promote an upcoming event, campus announcement, college blogpost or faculty achievement. These newsletters are sent to all Chapman faculty and staff on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Submit to the W@C Newsletter

Guidelines for Campus-Wide Emails

Emails requested to be sent to large groups of campus staff, faculty or students are received by a small group of evaluators who review the requests and approve or reject each request. The protocol is that messaging outside of the scope of “appropriate use” (see below) be submitted to the twice-weekly employee newsletter Working@Chapman.

What are examples of appropriate use of the campus-wide/large group email? 

  • The All-Campus Email Matrix is the guide for the authorized senders of emails
  • Celebrating a college for national rankings
  • An announcement by leadership of a campus accomplishment, job hiring, dean selection, retirement, death of a community member or resignation, etc. 

What are examples of what is NOT an appropriate campus-wide email? 

  • Non-Chapman related fundraisers, promotions or events
  • Political messages or campaigning
  • Departmental cleanings
  • Procedural updates, details about events or meetings that could be shared in Working@Chapman
