A consultation is a great first step and the best way to develop the most effective strategy. Come share your project goals with our team and brainstorm communication channels and messages. Some things to think about:

  • Think about what it is you’re trying to achieve.

  • Identify your your target audience(s).

  • Be mindful of your budget.

  • Please contact the Office of Communications at least 8 weeks before the projected/expected project completion date. If possible, schedule a consultation during the summer months to plan for the upcoming year. 

Every Thursday afternoon, we gather for a Strategic Communication meeting to prioritize, brainstorm and delegate tasks. We also use this time to meet with members of the campus community and learn about their communication goals. Please contact us to schedule a consultation or if you would like to be on the agenda for one of these meetings.
