Office of Communications and Fundraising

The Office of Communications and Fundraising, a division of the Office of the President, advances the University’s strategic goals by managing the University’s relationships with key internal and external audiences, including donors and the media. The award-winning team of journalists, public relations managers and fundraisers acts as liaison between the University and its many public audiences and partners.

The Office of Communications and Fundraising provides strategic communications advice to all members of the University community and manages the content of the main website, the University’s official print publications and key social media sites.
