Northland Community & Technical College is a diverse institution with over 250 faculty and staff, each of whom has a valuable contribution to make to the College.
Northland at Work is a newsletter that aims to highlight these contributions by providing a valuable source of information on topics of special interest to all those who work at Northland. Published by Northland Marketing & Communications, Northland at Work will be distributed semi-annually.
Who’s that new face around the office? Let people know before they call security on a stranger in the building. Consider including:
Did your program just appear at a major industry conference? Integrate awesome new technology? Let everyone know instead of assuming word of mouth will get around!
No one wants to get caught breaking College policy because he or she didn’t know something changed.
From potlucks to training sessions to recruitment events, let people know what’s coming up to help ensure events are attended and successful. Don’t forget to toss those on the College’s event calendar, too.
People throughout the College are probably working on cool stuff they’re passionate about. People on other teams might have no idea what those things are. So, ask around and see what’s cooking that’s worth sharing.
Tell about volunteer events or donation opportunities that are open to faculty and staff members at the College.
Recognize achievement! This could include:
Did your department or program win an industry award, get placed on a national list, receive a grant, or something similar? Let everyone know what the award is all about, why it’s important, and how it’ll help raise the College’s authority and visibility.
The NCTC Foundation contributed information about recent gifts made to the College. We do not accept general submissions for this section.
Build a list of relevant news sources from industry and share the best stuff that’ll help your coworkers be more informed.
Of course, be careful not to embarrass anyone against their own wishes. But if there’s something fun or goofy happening, snap a photo and tell a short story to go along with it.
We encourage you to submit your news and events for consideration in a future issue of the Northland at Work newsletter.
