The Office of Graduate Student Life & Development offers the following event promotion resources exclusively for TC Registered Student Organizations:

Want to utilize these resources? Here’s how:

  • Fill out the Event Request Form and select the resources required.  
  • All promotional material must be sent to GSLD a minimum of a week prior to the event in order to be added to the above resources.
  • To be included in the eNewsletter, the event flyer must be shared to studentorgs@tc.edu via Canva by Wednesday at 5pm EST prior to dissemination. An event description must also be included.
  • To get flyers printed, please send the flyer to studentorgs@tc.columbia.edu along with the quantity, size, and whether it should be black & white or color.
  • The Office of Graduate Student Life & Development oversees several display cases located throughout the College (near main College entrances / 1st floor lobbies), of which student organizations may promote their event. If your organization would like to promote an event via a printed flyer, please submit 4 copies to the GSLD front desk.

Please refer to the following guidelines to be considered for event promotion via GSLD forums. 

There are three main categories of information that will be promoted by GSLD forums:

  • Events sponsored/co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life & Development, including sub-entities, such as Registered Student Organizations.
  • Institutional announcements from the Vice Provost for Student Affairs.
  • College-wide events with community appeal (ex: State of the College, President's Office, Convocation, Orientation, Office Closures)

 The following types of information will not be approved for posting:

  • Sales of any type, except those sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life & Development and/or received prior approval from the Vice Provost for Student Affairs.
  • Displays for private charity organizations (ex: Red Cross, Salvation Army, religious services).
  • Courses that are offered as part of the regular academic curriculum.
  • Meetings or events that are personal in nature and/or not related to the regular function of the College.

GSLD reserves the right to modify content as appropriate due to space and viewing limitations.

Promotional requests are subject to review by GSLD. A request for event promotion does not constitute approval.
