Welcome to the new
University Relations.

You know what you want to say.
We’ll help you say it.

You’ve always trusted us with your communications
and creative needs. Now, our division has expanded into a full-service, integrated communications agency.

What this means
for you

For starters,
our combined resources are designed to help you smoothly navigate the ever-changing, often daunting media landscape.

Promoting an initiative, program or school takes more than
a website
news release
or ad – it’s
determining how these components can work together to relay your message.

Where do you begin?

Is a social media presence the missing component that will boost your program to the next level? Is a traditional brochure the best way to reach your audience? Do you need a comprehensive communications plan to tell your school’s story?

This is where
we come in

Collaborating with you,
we can serve as your guide to decide which avenue works best to suit your needs and budget.

When we
come together

Encompassing years of industry experience, our talented staff has seen what’s worked and what hasn’t. Visit our portfolio to see examples of our award-winning, integrated work.
