Faculty, staff and students looking for information about the change in name to Metropolitan State University of Denver now have a resource to get their questions answered.
Got U? launched July 1 to provide the University community quick access for information on everything from identity standards to email to funding for related expenses.
“This is a one-stop shop that will provide the most up-to-date information possible about handling the change in name,” says Cathy Lucas, associate to the president for marketing and communications.
Got U? includes a submission form if you have a question for which you can’t find the answer on the site. Marketing and Communications staff will reply to questions as quickly as possible.
In addition, @Metro will run a weekly Got U? column. You can submit your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to issues with the vendor that will handle the printing of letterhead, envelopes and business cards, the printing of these materials will not be available until mid July. Watch @Metro and Got U? for updates. Also, departments and programs are encouraged to use up their supplies of stationery before ordering new materials. The use of Metropolitan State College of Denver materials is acceptable through June 30, 2013.
The site template, home page and priority sites for the University website with the new domain name, msudenver.edu, went live July 1. Departments and programs are asked to have content on their pages updated by Dec. 30, 2012. Please use the editorial standards that are available on the website.
As previously reported, the University’s new email address—email@example.com—will not go live until Aug 1. For this reason, it is recommended that you not use new business cards until then. Emails send to msudenver.edu before then will not be delivered, nor will they bounce back.
Third-party software and customized systems
Departments and programs that are operating or coordinating a technology-related system or service either on-campus or hosted by an off-campus vendor should contact the Help Desk for assistance.
Work is ongoing in the background on technology systems such as Banner, digital signs and MetroConnect.
The portal will be getting a new name within the next few weeks, Connect U, as will @Metro and Metro Magazine. Those new names will be decided by Marketing and Communications.
What the SM (℠) mark means
The new logo and seal include the superscript “SM” (℠), which stands for service mark and indicates that the University owns these elements. A service mark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of a service. This mark is often used interchangeably with a trademark, which is associated with goods, not services. Just like with a trademark, the service mark means that no other entity can use our logo and typeface.
