Internal communication tools
An organisation the size of Leiden University requires careful internal communication.
Website and newsletters
Our most important internal communication tool is the staff website. For editorial information, please consult the web editorial section.
In addition, every Tuesday all staff members receive a newsletter with news and information.
Responses and suggestions are always welcome at email@example.com.
Leiden University in the news
If you wish to find out what the media write about Leiden University, its researchers and its students, you can register for the digital clippings collection ‘Leiden University in the news’. The links in this overview expire after three months. If you wish to archive an article for personal use, make sure you copy it immediately.
Note: this overview is only accessible via the University network, in other words from your workplace or via the Remote Workplace environment. You will therefore be asked to enter your Leiden University e-mail address when registering.
Staff website fgw.nu
The staff website homepage contains all announcements that may be interesting for staff members as well as news announcements from the Faculty news page. In short: all the news are bundled on a single page. On the staff website you can access all practical information, such as facilities, ICT manuals, information about salary and leave, procedures, etc. The Faculty of Humanities staff website is set as the homepage in Internet Explorer.
The fgw.nu newsletter appears once every two weeks. It contains a selection of the announcements and news reports on the staff website. It also contains an agenda of activities planned at the Faculty in the next two weeks.
You can consult the newsletter archive here.
The fgw.nu newspaper appears twice a year: in June and in December. It contains extensive interviews with staff members on relevant topics for the Faculty. The newspaper also offers context and background information on Faculty themes and emphasises the link between Faculty strategy and day-to-day operations.
You can consult the newspaper’s archive here (in Dutch and in English).
