The University recognizes the following modes of communication throughout the institution:

1. Electronic-mail (e-mail) and attachments via the Microsoft Office Suite

2. Written hardcopy

3. Telephone and University-sponsored voice-mail

4. The Cumberland University World Wide Web page and intranet of the University

 

All employees are expected, to utilize email, and other electronic mediums, as the primary mode of written communication. In order to ensure effectiveness of the various recognized mediums, employees are expected to check their e-mail, voice-mail, and traditional mail on a daily basis throughout the regular work week and for nine month employees weekly during summer break. Likewise as with other traditional publications of the University; employees are expected to be familiar with information posted via the Cumberland University World Wide Web page and Intranet of the University.
