The Communicators Community of Practice is for staff and faculty members in FAS schools, departments, and units who have responsibilities related to marketing and communications.

Our Community of Practice is one of the recommendations made by our Communications Department for the Faculty’s Strategy for Enrichment in Service (SEEES), based on feedback from our schools, departments, and units as well as members of the previous FAS Communications Working Group.

Our Community of Practice will provide opportunities for collaboration, best practice, information sharing between staff across FAS as well as training.
