Marketing and Communications

The LSA Marketing and Communications team exists to support the college and help it achieve its strategic goals. We do this by telling the many stories of our faculty, students, staff, and alumni. We connect our community to LSA and one another. Our creative work--including LSA Magazine, online storytelling, social media, design, video, public relations, and more--has been recognized with national and international awards. Through these channels, we conduct strategic outreach to audiences including current and prospective students, alumni, donors, our higher education peers, and the public. 


LSA Communications develops and distributes content about the impressive work of LSA faculty, staff, students, and alumni. We are responsible for strategic communications for the college and reaching key audiences through editorial content, social media, public relations, and more. We work with media from around the world to cover news from the college, develop and share social media content about LSA, and write feature stories for the award-winning LSA Magazine and LSA Today.
