How do you get the right message to the right audience in the right way at the right time? With help from your friendly CMU Strategic Communications team! Whether you need an annual plan to keep your stakeholders informed and engaged or want to promote an upcoming speaker, we can provide guidance, strategy and direction to help you accomplish your goal.

We are CMU’s internal PR agency

We want to help you find and share great news about Central Michigan University. We develop and send several CMU email newsletters, and partner with divisions and departments around campus for various print and digital publications. 

Our team also develops communication plans for major university projects and priorities; advises on emerging issues and assists with crisis communication; responds to media requests involving university administrators; and provides confidential messaging support and guidance to senior leadership. 

In addition, we serve as the primary point of contact for requests for public statements and inquiries related to the Board of Trustees, administration, and key issues such as admissions, university budget and more. 

The Strategic Communications team can help with:

News and Media Relations
• Crisis and Issue management
• General communications planning

We also offer regular trainings to support students, faculty and staff with internal and external communication needs.
