This EDUCAUSE constituent group addresses the challenge that IT professionals and organizations face in communicating strategically and clearly to user communities, internal and external constituencies, campus leadership, and within the IT organization itself. Topics for list discussion are broad, ranging from best practices and lessons learned to feedback and/or deconstruction of communiqués written by participants. This group meets at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference. Additionally, virtual coffee shops, are scheduled throughout the academic year. The Discussion Leader for virtual coffee shops is Carlyn Chatfield, Manager, IT Technical Communications, Rice University, email@example.com.
I am writing to get advice on how to refer to a large group of university constituents. Please see the underlined words below. I am concerned the list is too long, but am hesitant to refer to them as “constituents”. I am using “clients” (below) to mean people who hold an event on campus and pay for it. Anyone have a suggestion?

We are looking at several CMS packages as a solution for our enterprise CMS solution. We are currently using Joomla and Drupal. We are considering continuing with Drupal as well as look at commercial products.
I would appreciate feedback from this list on your current CMS product. Would you share what you like, don't like and any lessons learned from implementing for your CMS? How are you using the CMS within IT? Also would you select this product if you could start over?
Thank you in advance. I look forward to your responses.

Our CG has the opportunity to be present at the Southeast Regional Conference in Atlanta, GA--all we need is a volunteer! Limited space is available on Thursday, May 30 for a breakfast roundtable from 7:30-8:30 AM and/or a poster session after lunch at 1:30 PM. If someone wants to do the poster session, EDUCAUSE will provide our poster at the session (you don’t have to make it!).
These sessions are informal, relatively easy ways to connect with other ITCOMM professionals at regional events, as well as let newcomers know about all our dynamic online community has to offer. If you are planning to go to the conference and would like to volunteer to host one or both of these events, please let me know ASAP. If you’ve never done this before, I’ll be happy to work with you to ensure you...

At the University of Georgia, we are looking for a company that might provide Expression Engine consulting for two of our websites.
We use Expression Engine as our content management system for both our main university website and our information technology website.
We are trying to conduct a web health check to address some specific issues both from a technical and functional perspective..
If you have had experience with any Expression Engine companies, I would be interested in hearing from you.

We will hold a special (International) Coffee Shop this Friday, April 5 at 9 a.m. EST. The topic will be Annual Reports.
Below are a few of the questions we will address to get the conversation going.
1. How many articles do you publish in the report? What subjects, categories? How do you decide this?
2. Do all your articles relate to your mission?

I wonder if anyone can point me in the direction of peer reviewed academic journals that cover marketing and communications within Higher Education? I’m not so concerned about high impact factors, but am interested to see which publications other professionals in the field use and value as authoritative resources. I’m asking both to make sure that we are keeping up with the published literature, and also to find out where is best for us to share our own findings and observations.
Thank you for your time,
Dave Robinson, PhD
