The Office of Advancement, Communications & Alumni Relations advances the college's mission through media relations, publications, web services and online publishing, special projects and event planning, institutional image and marketing, internal communications, development (fundraising), and alumni and community relations initiatives.

Our office develops original content for a variety of media, works with journalists to develop and provide contacts for stories, and engages with internal and external audiences across a variety of platforms.
