Executive Communications staff coordinate efforts across the division, from leading CMU’s long-term marketing and communications planning to executing daily functions such as executive communications, analytics and metrics, special projects, budgeting, human relations and administrative work. The team supports leadership communications by ensuring the accuracy and timely flow of information to and from the President’s and Provost’s offices, and aligning communications with other institutional priorities and communications efforts.
