The following details University Web Services' (UWS) communication strategy.
UWS generates and sends communications specific to the following topics:
  • Design Themes/SLA  UWS communicates directly to Web Theme Owners synonymous with webmasters who manage a specific design theme in the domain.
  • SharePoint Training UWS sends training and open lab opportunities, as well as SharePoint hints and tips to a listserv set up specifically for SharePoint training. Web resources throughout the university who take advantage of UWS-sponsored SharePoint training and/or open lab sessions are added to the list automatically, and all other users can request to be added to the list at any time.
  • General UWS Communications UWS sends all general updates, including release information, new development projects in SharePoint, and other university-wide web topics, to a listserv set up for general UWS communications. All members on the previously used SPDAT listserv were added to the UWS-Communications listserv, and all other users can request to be added to the list at any time.
  • UWS-Owned Design Themes UWS communicates directly with site owners in the design themes in which they own (i.e., black theme, CU Online, etc.), and communicates directly to those groups as web theme owner for those themes.
  • Web strategy and governance An IT Governance group is currently being established at the executive level. UWS is advocating that the web be part of the scope for that group. Once the details of the IT Governance group become available, UWS will reevaluate the purpose of the SPDAT group. Ideally, the web will be part of the Governance group, and the SPDAT will be reestablished as an expert web group to help implement the web strategy the IT Governance group establishes at the higher level. 
NOTE about SPDAT: The SPDAT Team has been put on hold until the details of the IT Governance group emerge.  At that time, UWS will determine how the SPDAT can most effectively improve the web at the university, and will make appropriate adjustments to the current member list and meeting schedule. All communications sent to the SPDAT listserv in the past will be sent to the new UWS-Communications listserv. All members of the SPDAT list were moved to the UWS-Communications list to ensure uninterrupted communications from UWS.
