Assistant Vice President for University Communications
University Communications synthesizes the strategic communications needs of Cornell, aligns these opportunities with the university’s priorities, and leverages the skills of its staffs to develop communications solutions. Four primary departments support these efforts:
Public Affairs is Cornell University’s primary link to national and international media organizations. In addition, its staff manages Cornell’s website and events calendar, the university’s primary social media channels, and the university’s video collection, CornellCast.
News publishes Ezra, Cornell’s official magazine; the Cornell Chronicle, the university’s main news channel; and Pawprint, an employee newsletter.
Internal Communications provides information about campus issues and news, develops leadership and strategic communications, and provides administrative support to the university’s assemblies.
Event Communications and Visitor Relations, working directly with the assistant vice president, serves as the primary source of information for visitors to campus—prospective students and their families, prospective faculty and staff, conference attendees, community members, academic and research partners, international visitors, and many others.
Marketing serves first and foremost as stewards of the Cornell brand. Its staff members are the creative resource for marketing university initiatives and priorities across all media. Marketing also manages and staffs the Cornell Broadcast Studios, and creates and manages the university’s large photography collection.
