Drake students, faculty, and staff are the most important brand ambassadors for the University. The campus relations team works to improve internal communications and culture by coordinating messages from senior leaders, publishing the OnCampus e-newsletter, and managing any number of special initiatives and efforts.
Our public relations team is passionate about sharing Drake’s story with the world. And it’s a great story: Just ask U.S. News & World Report, CNN, and the Chronicle of Higher Education—just a few of the global media outlets that have featured Drake faculty, administrators, and students.
Public relations staff will work with you to build awareness around your message and share that message with relevant audiences through media relations, social media, and other means. We maintain the University’s Newsroom and train faculty and administrators on how to work effectively with reporters. Our responsibility also encompasses reputation management and crisis communication.
