In brief:
The web and intranet pages provide a communication channel for the university’s science, marketing, and community communication operations.

Service content:
The university’s communication is based on the strategy of the University of Lapland and on communication principles based on the strategy. The key functions of communication are science communication, marketing communication, and work community communication. In addition, the Communications and External Relations unit provides consultation, training, and web communication services to the work community. In this way the unit participates in research, teaching, artistic activity, social communication, and in communication that supports the work community. Communication concerns the entire work community. The executives are responsible for its strategic management, superiors for the communication of their own unit, researchers and teachers for the communication of their own field, and the general personnel for the communication concerning their duties. The Communications and External Relations unit is in charge of the coordination, planning, development, and support of the university’s communication.The above communication scheme is implemented through the university’s web and Intranet pages. Social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter, video, and blogs can also be used for communication.
