History--Biography
The Vice President of Communications is the chief administrator of the Office of Communications, and reports directly to the university President. The Office of Communications is responsible for all official communications between the university and the community it serves. It represents and promotes the university and its faculty, students, programs, and policies to a variety of external constituents: the media, the federal government, local governments, and neighboring communities. Communications also assists in communicating university news and information to internal constituents including faculty, student media, staff, and alumni. The Office of Communications helps members of the Brandeis community in publicizing campus events, scholarly achievements, and other news of general interest. Such publicity may be targeted to local, regional, or national media outlets through press releases and the monthly calendar. Offices under the aegis of Public Affairs include Media Relations, Publications, Photography, and Web Services.
