Office of Communications and Marketing

The Office of Communications and Marketing promotes a positive and consistent image of the college for internal and external audiences, including the press, and champions the accomplishments of our talented students, gifted faculty and dedicated staff.

To accomplish that, the assistant vice president serves as lead college spokesperson with the media at all levels. We also research, write, design, edit and arrange photography for a wide range of print and Web-based publications, including the Brooklyn College Magazine, the Commencement Program, the Brooklyn College Foundation Annual Report, the Faculty Newsletter and a variety of handbooks, newsletters, pamphlets, brochures, posters and invitations.

The assistant vice president coordinates media resources and oversees contacts between the Brooklyn College faculty and journalists seeking authoritative, up-to-date information and comments on a variety of both historical and current issues and events.

We are also responsible for the nontechnical maintenance of up-to-date information on the college website Admissions.
