What we do
Internal communications is a service of the UAB Office of Public Relations & Marketing.
We provide news and information to UAB employees to help create and sustain a positive, supportive and diverse work environment in which faculty and staff can excel, in keeping with the university's strategic plan goals and objectives.
Our group also helps business and administrative units create and implement internal communications strategies to inform, educate and motivate employees to support policies and programs that are in the best interest of UAB and its faculty and staff.
How we do itWe distribute information through several sources.
The eReporter — a twice-weekly electronic newsletter for distributing news, time-sensitive information and reminders to all UAB employees with a BlazerID. The eReporter is distributed through e-mail (from UAB News & Information) before the start of business each Tuesday and Friday. It is the university's preferred method for bulk-message distribution.
The eReporter is a publication by and for the UAB community designed to highlight and explore the interests, objectives and achievements of UAB and its faculty and staff. It includes news of university initiatives and awards, innovative programs and research and employee profiles.
A link to previous editions is included is accessible by clicking on The eReporter logo in the banner. Select the date from the pull-down menu.
Managers are asked to print and post copies of The eReporter for employees who may not have access to e-mail during the work day.
The Reporter online – www.uab.edu/reporter is the companion website that includes and expands on the mission of the twice-weekly electronic edition. Daily updates provide employees the most recent information available, and Web-only features extend our coverage of campus news and events.
