Welcome to the Gazette Online
September 3, 2014
Today marks the arrival of the newly designed Gazette Online and the continuation of the renewal of the communications platforms at Queen's.
The launch of the Gazette Online, replacing the Queen's News Centre, is another key piece of the integrated communications strategy and follows the return of the Gazette newspaper, the revamped MyQueen'sU portal and the reworking of the email newsletter, the Queen's Gazette Today (formerly e-Queen's).
The Gazette Online will provide the campus community with up-to-date news and information and will complement the print edition of the Gazette.
"The Queen's News Centre has been a reliable platform for some years now, but the world of online communications is changing rapidly, and now it's time for us to build on what we have and take it the next step," says Michael Fraser, Vice-Principal, University Relations. "The news centre will be brighter and cleaner, with a modern design that integrates more tools and features than we've had before all the while keeping in mind accessibility and usability."
The Gazette Online is more than a news site as it provides information that can be used to find out the latest about day-to-day life at Queen's, such as construction alerts and administrative updates, as well as a go to place for media to find the latest news release or search for a faculty expert.
"Our goal is to create a news centre that helps staff and faculty stay in touch with what is happening on campus, to engage with each other to tell the Queen's story," says Mr. Fraser.
The Gazette can be found at numerous locations around campus and is published bi-weekly throughout the school year, and monthly during the summer.
