Are you a student, faculty or staff member with something to share?

Emily Carr University has a variety of channels where you can promote your events, department updates or other announcements.

Some of these channels are self-serve, which means you can use an easy-to-navigate form to submit them. Others are curated and managed by ECU’s Communications + Marketing team.

Content is regularly shared with the ECU community in several ways, including through weekly digests sent directly to your inbox. Sign up for the digests here, and read on for more details!
