Event Promotion

Throughout the year, Columbia Mailman School groups host a wide variety of events, from lecture series and award ceremonies to film screenings and student group meetings. Once an event is ready for promotion, event managers can submit events to the Mailman School of Public Health calendar (use the Columbia Calendar system) and the lobby digital signage. Fill out the online Project Plan checklist to take advantage of additional support from the Office of Communications for public events, and the Event Project Plan (PDF) for private events.

Deadlines for Promotion

  • Event Transmission & Social Media - Events submitted to the Mailman School Calendar by noon on the Thursday prior to the week in which it falls will be considered for social media promotion and included in the Event Transmission email, a weekly (Monday to Monday) email digest of events sent during the academic year. Contact Student Life to promote student events. 
  • Digital Signage - The lobby and 8th Floor digital signs are updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For Tuesday updates submissions should be made by 2pm on Friday and for Thursday updates submissions should be made by 2 pm on Tuesday.

Calendar Administrators

Each Mailman School event organizer has a staff member who manages which events are approved for posting. If your event has been submitted but has not been added to the calendar, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate calendar administrators.
