FIT is committed to keeping our community of faculty, students, staff, and administrators informed and connected to one another, and to enabling collaboration and information sharing. We work in a variety of channels, including the website’s home page, email, Newsroom, and social media, to provide useful, relevant, and timely updates on news, activities, and events.
Review the various channels and processes below. Help us share information by letting us know about potential stories. We welcome any ideas you have about ways to communicate within the institution.
FIT Newsroom and Newsroom Direct
FIT Newsroom is the college's central source for events, news, and activities. It provides direct event promotion to all FIT employees and enjoys a wide subscription base of students, alumni, and friends of the college.
Newsroom Direct is the e-newsletter companion to Newsroom. It contains current Newsroom highlights, and is sent on Monday afternoons to employees and subscribers. Submissions are welcome and everyone is encouraged to submit information.
External Relations Email Account
CER is authorized to send college-wide email to the FIT community. College-wide email is generally reserved for news and information that is intended for broad distribution and of interest to the coummunity. College-wide email is also used to send time-sensative information about college and facilities operations as well as to disseminate news and notifications in emergency situations. Instead of using college-wide email, we encourage the community to submit individual events and news items about faculty or departments to Newsroom.
To inquire about whether your item is appropriate for a college-wide employee email or to discuss other options, please contact us at [email protected]

- The Office of the President is authorized to email all employees and sends information about a range of topics regarding matters of importance to the college.
