Web Communication

Event Landing Pages

Add the words "Cancelled" or "Postponed" to individual event landing pages. We recommend using the Callout component with a yellow background and caution sign to match the yellow banner already included on all UB websites. Be sure to include contact information for the event organizer or a link to their contact information as well as a link to the UB COVID-19 Information Website.

Event Listings and Calendar Pages

SEAS Communications has developed some flexible shared content in the UB CMS that the SEAS web community can take advantage of including two "Events Caution Callouts." We recommend adding these callouts to pages that include lists of upcoming events. These callouts can be embedded on CMS pages using the Shared Content Reference component. There is a large and small version available depending on the format of your pages. Visit the SEAS COVID-19 Toolbox folder in Shared Content (CMS login required) to see everything that is available.

Need Help?

If you need assistance adding callouts or making any website changes, please complete the Request to Modify SEAS Websites and User Permissions form to have SEAS Communications add it for you. This is the quickest way for SEAS Communicaitons to process requests.

Social Media

  • We recommend that the SEAS community stop sharing events on Facebook until students return to campus
  • If you are postponing or canceling an event, consider posting the information on your social media channels
  • Repost official UB communications and include the #UBuffalo hashtag
  • Direct students to the latest information on the UB COVID-19 Information website orthe SEAS Coronavirus website and encourage them to check back often. Use the engineering.buffalo.edu/coronavirus vanity URL in social posts.
