Office of the Chancellor Communications

Campus Public Relations and Marketing Officers

Although not a formal sub-council, the campus public relations and marketing officers group interacts on a regular basis with the Director of Communications. As need arises, the group meets either in person or by conference call, and they also frequently consult each other and share information on an informal basis. When opportunities develop, the group collaborates on system-wide advertising and media coverage.
