Welcome Kit

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. You are part of a vibrant group of communicators around campus who are vital to telling the university’s story.

We want you to have the knowledge, resources and connections that will help you succeed. Please use the below starting points along with our broader list of resources and feel free to contact us.

Save the date: Join us the morning of Friday, March 3, 2023 for our orientation to University Communications and University Marketing. You’ll hear about our approach to institutional marketing and communications, meet leaders and other staff, and learn about resources available to all campus communicators. RSVP today.

Connect with a University Communications staff member

We recommend identifying a member of University Communications staff who can serve as your liaison, answer questions and help you share stories from your corner of campus. Unsure who to contact? Send us an email and we’ll find the right fit.

Connect with other communicators in your orbit

News offices and communications teams within many colleges, schools, institutes, departments and programs can serve as valuable resources for you. Your liaison in University Communications can help you identify other colleagues to connect with.

Join a communicators group

We help organize a handful of professional development groups (also known as communities of practice) on campus dedicated to communications, such as Campus Communicators, Research Communicators and #UWSocial. Access the campus communicators list and other groups here. Members share relevant information, help one another solve problems, and meet in person to make connections between communicators across campus.
