The Office of Strategic Communications, within the Office of University Branding, manages two outlets for faculty/staff announcements at George Mason University:
- Around Mason, the weekly faculty/staff announcements, are included in The George every Tuesday. Mason departments may submit announcements to share information and opportunities with the faculty/staff community.
- Mason E-Files Alerts and Building Notices provide more urgent notification to faculty/staff regarding building maintenance, construction/traffic advisories, significant event impacts, or network disruptions. Depending on the nature of the alert, the email message may be sent to building-specific faculty/staff, or to the entire faculty/staff listserv.
Mason E-Files Alert and Building Notices are automatically sent to all active faculty (full-time, part-time, adjunct, and administrative) and all staff (full-time, part-time classified, non-student wage); university affiliates; and contractors. Mason E-Files Alerts are only sent to @gmu.edu email addresses. Building Notices are sent to employees with offices in the affected location, based on information listed in People Finder.
