The Office of Web and Digital Strategy has added the capability for editors to now submit articles to be published to the Orbit website. The Orbit website is our Internal Communication Hub, meant to improve internal communications and streamline access to resources for employees. Articles appropriate for Orbit should include need-to-know employee information, such as trainings, services for employees, rules and procedural changes/reminders, opportunities for morale and culture-building, etc., to support the goal of Orbit as a central news hub for UIS employees.

Now editors have the option to add articles to Orbit for their employee news and announcements.

You can do so by selecting an option the Orbit news category, and the corresponding subcategory on what type of Orbit article it is:

  • breaking news: time-sensitive information that is pertinent to all of campus.
  • campus announcement: share all your departments campus announcements, directly related to employees.
  • eom: this is to create and share articles related to the employee of the month.

All articles recommended by editors are reviewed by the Office of Marketing and Brand Strategy for alignment to the Orbit purpose and goals.

Once you are ready for your article to be reviewed and published, submit for 'Needs Review' and an email will be sent to the Marketing team for review.
