Advancement Communications

Advancement Communications raises awareness of the College’s priorities and programs among its alumni, parents and friends. Using print and electronic media, Advancement Communications promotes events, creates fundraising solicitations and campaigns, and supports the ongoing outreach efforts of divisions across Advancement.

Advancement Communications works closely with Public Affairs, Information Technology and outside content providers, designers and programmers to produce work that consistently and clearly conveys the distinctive values and strengths of Amherst as it celebrates the College’s unique and profound impact in the world.
