Internal communications

Our aim is to ensure staff and students know what is happening at Sussex and why, and work with colleagues to help our University community feel involved in the life of the institution.

 We do this by:

  • Working with colleagues across campus on the communication of issues and change
  • Producing our two staff newsletters, This week at Sussex (weekly) and Sussex in focus (fortnightly)
  • Liaising with student journalists on the weekly Students' Union newspaper, the badger, and other student media
  • Managing content of the University intranet, particularly the central pages for students and for staff
  • Managing other channels of internal communications
  • Promoting good practice in internal communications throughout the University
  • Developing campaigns to help engage our students about the University – from academic matters to leisure pursuits

The Internal Communications team works closely with the University of Sussex Students’ Union (USSU) to keep students informed and engaged regarding developments at Sussex. To find out more about what our Students’ Union have been up to, visit the USSU website.
