Last year, a group within SGA proposed that Pepperdine should install digital signage displays on campus. The University Management Committee (UMC) approved a digital signage pilot project for the 2007-2008 academic year. The UMC appointed a task force chaired by Mark Davis to manage the project. A presentation will be made to the UMC in the summer, 2008, regarding recommendations for future expansion. The project is being funded by individual departments. During the pilot phase, Jennifer Christy in the Dean of Student Affairs Office will serve as the University administrator for the project.
Digital signage is an educational tool designed to create an informed community through the announcement of events and the distribution of other information of interest to the community (e.g., accomplishments, services, PSAs, classroom or schedule changes, etc.). Digital signage will not be used for outside advertising, classified announcements, or events or announcements that do not support the mission of Pepperdine University.
We are hoping that this tool is both informative and educational by highlighting exciting events and academic projects. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to submit announcements to share with our community to firstname.lastname@example.org.
