A biweekly publication for faculty and staff

Panorama Readers Favor Staff Profiles in 2014-15

May 22, 2015

As another academic year wraps up, Panorama — this biweekly newsletter, produced by University Communications for the whole faculty and staff — prepares for its annual summer hiatus with a look back at the top stories of the past year.

Finding suitable meeting space for collaborative sessions on campus and at other UC Merced locations has been a longstanding challenge. Maybe that’s why the Sept. 12 announcement of an online directory to simplify the process topped the list of most-read stories.

A quick glance at the list shows four of the top 10 stories are Spotlights, a regular feature that highlights interesting employees and provides insight into the work they do to further the university’s goals.

In each edition of Panorama, University Communications staff members try to include a mix of stories that keep readers aware of everything happening in our campus community.

Other top stories highlighted new hires and strategic planning initiatives.

Panorama will resume biweekly publication in the fall, delivering features and leadership messages directly to your inbox and online.
