About Us

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

University Communications furthers the goals and priorities of the University and its academic units by telling the stories of UChicago and sharing its culture within our community and beyond. In promoting awareness of the University, we aim to help our campus partners recruit students and faculty, disseminate the work of our scholars, engage our diverse community, attract visitors, and reinforce our unique intellectual culture.

As a central resource for the University, we connect and support a network of communicators across campus. We set guidelines to uphold the main messages and visual identity of the University, and help members of the University community see the full range of communications opportunities available to help them reach their goals.
