A new online calendar for The University of North Carolina at Pembroke was launched September 26. It is the university's first comprehensive calendar, and it is online at www.uncp.edu/calendar/.
The University Calendar may be viewed as a single master calendar or as eight smaller calendars, including academic, administrative, alumni, arts and entertainment, athletics, faculty and staff and student life, said University Web Publisher Lawrence Locklear.
"I believe it is easy to use and useful," Locklear said. "In one source, all University events are accessible to the public and the University community."
University and Community Relations Vice Chancellor Glen Burnette Jr. hailed the project as an important one for a growing university.
"The Office for University and Community Relations is pleased to offer this excellent planning tool for the entire university and the public," Dr. Burnette said. "The University Calendar is one of many valuable services we offer to keep our public informed of the various events, accomplishments and up-to-date news occurring at their University."
Links to the University Calendar will be added throughout the UNCP web site. A "button" will be added to the main UNCP web site linking to the University Calendar, Locklear said. The calendar also has an email feature for its users.
"The public can subscribe to individual calendars using their email address, and they will be automatically sent reminders of events, as well as notifications of addition/deletions/changes in events," Locklear said. "The calendar may also be customized and printed for each viewer."
The University Calendar may be viewed by day, week, two weeks, month or year.
"The calendar will display all campus events, including student meetings, events at Givens Performing Arts Center, athletic events and music department performances," Locklear said.
Numerous calendar managers from each University department have been selected to add events.
