Office of Communications

Our Mission

The Office of Marketing and Communications provides strategic and creative leadership and support for the University of New England across all media and communications platforms. Our mission is to raise awareness for UNE, enhance the University’s reputation, facilitate operations, and foster community in alignment with institutional goals.

Our Teams

The teams within the Office of Marketing and Communications are cross-functional and highly collaborative. Team distinctions exist largely for organizational purposes. In reality, members of different teams work closely with one another, as most projects require expertise in a variety of areas.

All teams are supported by Vice President Ellen Beaulieu, who provides strategic direction to ensure our work aligns with and advances University priorities.
