Take Advantage of Tzolk’in, UW’s Interactive Calendar
February 27, 2012 — Need help promoting your seminars, talks, special programs and more? Don't overlook Tzolk'in, the calendar that provides an effective tool for students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and the public to stay informed about what is happening at the University of Wyoming.
The interactive, user-friendly calendar provides an organized listing of university events. Users are able to view and submit event information, send events to their personal calendars, receive email and text message reminders, and notifications of event changes and browse by event category.
"We want our UW students, faculty and staff to be actively engaged in various activities that UW has to offer, and it is our responsibility to make that information easy to find and readily available in a central location," says Sara Axelson, UW vice president for student affairs.
UW Institutional Communications also uses Tzolk'in as a source of public events included on a weekly calendar that is distributed to newspapers and other publications, radio and television stations and websites.
"Don't wait until the last minute to send out a list serve announcement to attract people to your event," says Chad Baldwin, director of Institutional Communications. "An average of more than 13,000 individuals visit this site per month, so this calendar is an excellent way to let people know about your event."
