Saint Mary’s has streamlined the process for submitting events and announcements to both the weekly newsletter and the SMC website. This change eliminates duplications in the submission process and will allow many more campus community members to submit information directly to our website and other communication vehicles.  

Faculty and staff are asked to submit events and announcements directly to the campus calendar and to a new announcements web page via Salli, the system used to manage content on our website.

Here are some details on how to list your announcements and events:

  • The primary platform for Event listings will be the campus Events Calendar. If you want to publicize an event, create an Event listing. The Bulletin will link to the calendar, which will be expanded and enhanced in the coming months, allowing for a more customized view of events by day, week, month and intended audiences. 
  • Announcements will be featured on a dedicated web Announcements page so community members can easily access and search all the latest announcements, a function that’s not possible in the current Bulletin. The newsletter will provide a brief list of announcements and will link to the announcements page, which will go live during the week of September 23-27.
  • Community members are encouraged to continue to submit news stories or news ideas that are not Announcements or Event listings either via a link in the newsletter, via email at news@stmarys-ca.edu or through the online submission form, stmarys-ca.edu/submitnews

SMC community members who use the Salli system to manage their website content may submit Announcements and Events via the Salli Dashboard. Be sure to review the updated Salli Tutorials.

Other community members may submit their Event notices and Announcements through their department, office or club web representative. Or they may request access to the Salli system via the Web Help Form.

During a one-month transition period, College Communications will offer 30-minute training/Q&A sessions for community members who may need additional assistance in learning how to use the forms to submit events or announcements. No RSVP is required.

If you have questions about how to create an event or announcement that are not answered in the above Salli instructions, please submit a help request via the Web Help Form.
