THE RMU WEEKLY NEWSLETTER

NEWS

-- As a reminder, the Public Relations and Marketing Department has created the RMU Brand Toolkit for campus-wide access. The goal is to tell the RMU story with more ease through this self-serve toolkit that contains commonly requested digital items such as logos, photography, Word and PowerPoint templates, letterhead, and guidelines for branding and social media practices. You can also order business cards, envelopes, promotional products, and request a photographer for an RMU event.

-- Congratulations to producer Nicholas Milliron who was awarded the “Award of Excellence” from the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) 2017 Student Video Competition: Studio (multi-camera or live-to-tape) for the SCJ 2016 Election Night Coverage entry.

-- Female executives in Pittsburgh-area nonprofits are seeing their salaries catch up with men's, according to the latest wage and benefit survey by the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University. The survey said female executive directors in southwestern Pennsylvania nonprofits made $104,000 last year. That's still only 81% of the average salary of $129,000 for a man in the same position, but it's up from 75% the year before, so the news is getting better.

-- Only one week left for faculty to sign up for next month's Research and Grants Expo! All faculty members are invited to submit an abstract of your current research interest at research.rmu.edu. The event includes breakfast and lunch, with speakers and networking opportunities to help you advance your research ideas. Register by next Friday to reserve your spot.

-- Hockey. Outdoors. Heinz Field. Free. February 26.
