The Council on Strategic Communications is a forum for senior professionals who have responsibilities for alumni relations, communications, university relations and other external constituency relations at land-grant and public research universities. Through the interaction of its members, this Council develops, implements, and advises on strategies that aggressively advocate the benefits, achievements and vital contributions of land-grant and public research universities to the quality of life in the United States, thereby increasing the understanding and support for public higher education at the state and national levels.
The mission of this Council focuses on:
1. Issues specific to the functions of communications, university relations and other external constituency relations;
2. The necessary and important interactions of those functions with respect to the specific issues; and
3. The external issues that broadly affect land-grant and public research universities.
