Office of Communications

I would like to...

Media Relations

The Office of Communications offers a team of experienced media relations professionals who will work to guide you through the media process and shine a spotlight on the ongoing successes at UNE. 

We are constantly engaged in a proactive effort to identify opportunities for UNE's staff and faculty experts to contribute to whatever news stories are in the headlines or are likely to be important to the public interest in the future. UNE is fortunate to have a wealth of expertise in areas that range from global affairs, environmental studies, marine sciences, to numerous areas in the health arena, and highlighting faculty expertise is a priority. 




No matter your department or program at UNE, our graphic design team is eager to work with you to design products that help your initiatives succeed.

Our expertise includes the design of magazines, posters, brochures, flyers, print advertisements, event programs, postcards, note cards, note pads, holiday cards, invitations, envelopes, banners, flags, magnets, pens, pins, tee-shirts, sweatshirts, tablecloths, avatars, bus wraps, billboards, wall murals, and more.

If you can envision it, we can design it.


Please submit your design requests through the Graphic Design Project Request Form. Turnaround time depends on our workload and the scope of the project. When submitting a request, you will be prompted to log into your UNE Google account using the username and password used to log into U-Online.

Social Media

Working across a variety of social media channels, the Office of Communications helps to define and strengthen the University's image. We highlight the work being done in UNE's various academic programs, showcase UNE's partnerships with various community organizations, celebrate the accomplishments of UNE students and faculty, laud the rich life beyond the classroom that UNE students enjoy, and share news of upcoming events and activities.

While much of the work the Office of Communications does to promote UNE's brand on social media occurs at the institutional level, we recognize that you may wish to communicate on a departmental or program-specific social media channel with your constituents. To facilitate this, we offer consulting services to help you get started, develop content, and build an audience. Prior to setting up UNE social media accounts, please get in touch with Social Media Strategist Louise Coburn to discuss UNE’s social media policy and best practices.
