The Division of Communications and Marketing maintains the University Events website which promotes events organised by Faculties/Schools, institutions and other departments. Columba is the system used to collect and display event data on the Events website. Data from Columba can also be used on other University-related websites. Access to the Columba system is regulated by Columba 'champions' found across the University. 

See the Editor's guide for more information on how to use Columba.
