Communication Procedures

Now that myUDC is in use university-wide, the Firebird and all UDC communication channels are undergoing a slight transformation. See our handy-dandy chart below for what will run where.

Please send all submissions to udc-communications@udc.edu and we will determine which channel is best. Watch this space for more information and please keep those comments/suggestions coming.

Thanks for your support.
