In the daily rush to communicate — posting fresh web content and meeting print project deadlines — sometimes the written word can suffer or the overall strategy can get lost in favor of “just getting it done.” Unfortunately, when strategy, spelling, grammar, syntax, or style are neglected, the message gets muddied and an organization can lose credibility.
The Communications Office is here to help with editing, writing, and creative communications. Working in conjunction with college offices and clients, we are available to help plan and execute a wide variety of written content projects to serve the needs of the college community. We can help you brainstorm, strategize, plan, write, edit, and prepare for the production of promotional and marketing communications and advertisements. These can take the form of brochures, postcards, websites, e-mails, or whatever you can dream up.
