Through strategic outreach, authentic reporting, and creative media, University Communications illuminates and supports the mission and the many initiatives of the University of Chicago.

Strategic Communications

The work that the Office of the Vice President for Communications contributes to University projects and initiatives aligns with and supports the greater goals of our institution. Guided by research and strategy, we work with our UChicago partners and share best practices with our network of campus communicators.

Engaging Storytelling

With the University’s new website, we provide a distinctive access point for exploring UChicago. Our News Office reports on the events, announcements, and latest news of the University and facilitates media coverage of UChicago through the faculty experts guide and broadcast facilities such as the new television studio.

Comprehensive Campaigns

Drawing on the expertise of UChicago Creative, our in-house creative agency, we develop multiplatform communications campaigns that embody the voice and vision of the University. We contribute to the production of strategic events and use targeted outreach to engage local, national, and international communities.

Distinctive Identity

University Communications maintains and promotes the distinctive character and unique visual identity of the University of Chicago across a multitude of platforms. We maintain the University’s identity guidelines, and, through our licensing group, we facilitate the creation and production of University of Chicago merchandise.
