Council on Strategic Communications

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 Council serves as a home for members to:

1. Discuss common challenges and opportunities;

2. Share and elevate best practices;

3. Build relationships with higher education communications and marketing leaders; and

4. Work across institutions to build increased support for the value of public four-year research universities.
