About Us

University Communication and Marketing is an administrative unit reporting to the Vice President for Strategic Communication. We work with central administration, as well as with colleges and units across campus, to advance the ideals on which our university speaks with one voice—the preeminent value of learning, discovery, and engagement; the belief that diversity serves these missions; and the embrace of free thought and free speech.

University Communication and Marketing promotes these ideals through communications that reach a range of audiences, from faculty, staff, and students on campus to alumni and friends all over the world.
