The Office of Communications tells the stories of Amherst College, providing the campus community, as well as prospective students, alumni and the public, with a look at Amherst’s vibrancy and excellence. We chronicle the achievements of the college—and our faculty, students and alumni—through articles, images, video and multimedia on amherst.edu and social media, in print publications, and through outreach to local, national and global media outlets.
We prepare news for release to newspapers and other media, produce the college homepage and top-level pages of the college website, oversee the college’s sports communication program and organize college-wide events, including each year’s Commencement Weekend. Our projects include the course catalog, Amherst magazine and recruiting publications used by the Admission Office.
We create content—in words, photographs, audio and video—that highlights the excellence and uniqueness of Amherst College and its community.
