Strategic Communications oversees executive communications, internal communications, special projects, and the Communicators' Network.

We're here to collaborate.

Our team works with campus partners to produce and share information with students, faculty, and staff and build awareness of research projects, events and initiatives across our campuses. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and invite you to use the resources we’ve created below.

The team provides communications strategy and support for the Office of the Chancellor including remarks, letters, statements, website, a monthly e-newsletter and social media.

Our Resources

The team increases connectivity, awareness, morale and pride of students, faculty and staff by informing them about and engaging them in campus life.
