Submitting Announcements


​The CHSBS website, social media, and digital screens in Anspach, Pearce, Sloan and Powers are available for announcing events hosted by CHSBS (​departments or RSOs) or events that feature CHSBS faculty and students. We also welcome announcements regarding special awards or recognitions for CHSBS faculty, staff and students.

CHSBS Digital Screens

​CHSBS has digital screens in Anspach, Pearce, Powers and Sloan Halls. The digital screens project slides at a standard widescreen view of 16:9. Slides that do not meet the 16:9 widescreen format will have black bars added to the edges to fill the gaps. (For example, if a slide is designed in landscape 11x8.5, it will appear with about an inch of black space on each side.)

  • PowerPoint = set slide size to 16:9 (download ​blank template)
  • Image files = 10 in. wide by 5.625 in. tall 
  • Word documents = landscape orientation 

Slides should include one or several images or graphics, one bold heading, and 2 to 3 smaller headings or bullet points. Small font sizes do not project clearly onto the screen.

Slides with too much text, poor resolution images/graphics, or fonts that are too small to read may be sent back to the requesting party for revisions. Email slide requests to Sarah Buckley.​
