Office of University Communications

The Office of University Communications serves as the University’s marketing, communications and media relations office. We work with each college and unit on campus to develop and implement strategic communication goals and strategies that support the priorities of the unit and the University as a whole.

University Communications is located in the Hertzog Building on Wiggins Road, south of the University Library.
