About the Office of Communications

The Office of Communications is responsible for promoting the School of Arts and Sciences as the unified liberal arts program of Rutgers University.

Under the direction of Kara Donaldson, Associate Dean for Planning and Communications, the Office builds relationships with and acts as a resource for all academic departments, programs, and centers in SAS.

The Office serves the SAS community by gathering and developing news, feature stories, and other multimedia content about SAS to share with the university community, the public, and the news media. The communications staff is also available to help SAS units develop communications strategies for special events or other needs.  As part of the collection and distribution of news and events in SAS, the Office collects Departmental Reports of faculty achievements three times a year and sends out weekly events emails.

The Office works closely with Media Relations to coordinate story development, publicity, and media outreach.

The Office creates and maintains the content and functionality of the SAS website, and is charged with seeing that SAS presents a unified and cohesive image by helping centers, departments, and other units in SAS meet visual identity standards on websites and printed publications.
