Our Mission

Student Affairs Marketing and Communications enhances the student experience through strategic marketing and streamlined communication initiatives; engages with our audiences through relevant, inspiring, informational and timely content; and elevates the Carnegie Mellon Student Affairs brand, internally and externally.

To achieve these goals, Student Affairs Marketing and Communications will focus on five strategies:

  • Streamline communications across the division to become more effective communicators and to better inform our students and other audiences.
  • Create content to reflect and market the DOSA brand, enhance the audience experience, educate students on divisional programming and increase participation, and share divisional stories and news to internal and external audiences.
  • Assist individual DOSA units with brand development and strategic planning, from the perspective of a collective DOSA brand.
  • Identify internal and external public relations opportunities that bolster pride and school spirit, better inform audiences, share DOSA stories of impact, support an inclusive community and position the division as an industry leader.
  • Establish divisional marketing and communications procedures to create content and collect, analyze and distribute information.

Our Communicators

Representatives from each unit in Student Affairs come together once a month for the Student Affairs Communicators Meeting to discuss news and story ideas, review upcoming events, brainstorm marketing initiatives for the division, uncover partnership opportunities, identify photography and video opps, and more.
